Lobby the Pollies now please!

Send a letter/email to our Federal & State politicians to lobby for the $3M we need for the pool’s construction. 
We must keep up the pressure.

The Apollo Bay Aquatic Centre Inc. was established in 2012 to achieve funding and ongoing support for the construction of a new heated indoor swimming pool for Apollo Bay.

Lobby our Federal & State Politicians

Council’s commitment to the ongoing operational costs of the pool is a big step.  It allows us to now lobby our Federal MPs for the capital funding to build it.  We still need $3M for its construction!

Send a letter/email to our Federal & State politicians to lobby for the $3M we need for the pool’s construction.  We must keep up the pressure.  Here is a pro-forma letter or write your own (preferable).
