Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 24th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 25, 2009 5 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au How Lara came to club's aid FIONA BRADY Lara Bingle has caused a stir in Ashfield. IF Lara Bingle's ears were burn- ing on Thursday night, it could have been because she was being discussed at a special Ashfield council meeting. Photographs of the glamourous WAG at Ashfield's empty water polo pool were a hot topic at the meeting about the aquatic centre. Members of Wests Water Polo Club who have been pool-less since the 33m pool closed in November due to safety concerns were bemused by Bingle's January photo shoot which was featured in a Sunday newspaper. Coach Mario Sindone, who wit- nessed the photo shoot, said coun- cil worries over tile safety on the bottom of the pool didn't seem to apply to the modelling shoot. ''It wasn't just Lara Bingle, it was Lara Bingle and 12 other people without shoes on since they didn't want to slip,'' he said. In theory, the meeting of the Ashfield Aquatic Centre working party was to discuss the redevelop- ment of Ashfield Aquatic Centre. But when 60 people from Wests Water Polo turned up, the pool closure issue took centre stage. Wests Water Polo president Phil de Gail warned that his club would probably fold if the 33m pool did not reopen. It would have dire consquences for the aquatic centre too, he warned. ''The place is going to die with- out us there,'' he said. Moved by the club's pleas, Mayor Ted Cassidy put forward a notice of motion calling for the general manager to negotiate with the club to bring the 33m pool back into use and to negotiate for Wests to fund the necessary work in exchange for a lease on the pool. ''I think it is downright stupid for the pool to be empty while we are deliberating (about the re- development),'' he said. The motion was unanimously supported by fellow councillors. BRIEFLY Meeting binned CANADA Bay Council's committee of the whole meeting, due to be held on Tuesday, July 7, has been cancelled. The next committee of the whole meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 4. The regular council meeting scheduled for Tuesday, July 21, will take place as planned in the council chambers at 6pm.
