Around West Arthur: May 14

New Bike Rack

Thanks to a grant from the CBH Grass Roots Fund, the West Arthur CRC was able to purchase a bike rack which has been installed outside the West Arthur Health and Resource Centre building in Darkan.

The rack will help keep the entry clear and safe for those coming into the building and also help look after the bikes and scooters which can now be stood upright instead on the ground.

RACK 'EM UP: Rebecca South, Coordinator at West Arthur CRC and a keen cyclist, has found the new bike rack outside the centre very useful.
