ROGER PRICE MP Federal Member for Chifley

MEDIA RELEASE November 12, 2004

A Club to be proud of

Federal Member for Chifley, Roger Price, today (Saturday, November 13) officially re-opened the newly extended and refurbished Mt Druitt Workers Club.

Planning for the Club’s new look commenced in 1999 and commenced this year. The $6.5 million project has resulted in the stylish new Brasserie on Woodstock and the Tradies Lounge, which also feature an outdoor seating area. The entertainment lounge and auditorium have also been extended to cater for an increasing demand by the public to hold their functions at the Club.

The day featured live entertainment, complimentary food plates, special prizes, and a free drink for every member.

Mr Price congratulated the Mt Druitt Workers Club on its extension and refurbishment.

“Since the day the Mt Druitt Workers Club opened in 1983, it has firmly entrenched itself in the community,” Mr Price said.

“The first sod of soil was turned in January this year and since then we’ve all waited with anticipation to see how the renovations would turn out. I think it’s safe to say that no one is disappointed. It’s never looked better, it’s never felt better,” he said.

Mr Price said that aside from the important role the Club played in the local economy, employing around 60 people, it had also made a significant contribution through its charity work.

“The Club gives so much back to the community and invests heavily in a number of charities, particularly programs that help our children to reach their full potential,” he said.

“I know that over the next 21 years - and beyond - we will continue to see it grow and surpass itself,” Mr Price said.

Club Secretary Michael Huff said future plans for the Club included continuing to provide excellent service and further strengthening its roots in the community.

“The Mt Druitt Workers Club is a place where you can go to catch up with your mates - and make new ones, it is a place to take the family for a great meal, it is a place to go for an entertaining night out. It is so many things to so many people, but above all it’s friendly,” Mr Huff said.
