New community exercise eqipment for Warrina Sreet Oval
(
Media Release from Julian Leeser MP)

The Berowra community is set to receive new public exercise equipment. The Morrison Government is providing $15,000 to the Lions Club of Berowra to assist with the supply, installation and commissioning of a six station community exercise gym in Warrina Sreet Oval to benefit all ages of the community. “This facility will allow the Berowra community to incorporate exercise on the equipment into their walks to and from the park,” said Julian Leeser MP. “Free gym equipment is important for our communities as it provides opportunity for residents, with a gym membership or without, to improve their wellbeing.”
“The project, when completed, will benefit all aspects of the local community,” said Graham Estreich, Vice President of the Lions Club of Berowra. This funding will fill the gap in funding for the project. 

The Lions Club has the support of two other Berowra based service clubs - The Rotary Club of Berowra and the APEX Club of Berowra. Each club will also make a contribution to the project to enable it to go forward.

Berowra Rotary advises with sadness the passing of Jan Polczynski PHF, past president and long time member of Berowra Rotary. Jan gave much to Rotary over the years, he was very active and contributed on many levels.

Our sympathy to his family.
Sadly our members and past members were not be able to attend his funeral under the current restrictions,

we were however able to watch the streamed service. 
RIP Jan.
