Previously, the Yuelamu Rec Hall was flooded every time there was big rain and had to be temporarily closed. With the new repairs Youth and Communities commissioned in June, this will be a thing of the past.
Contractors have landscaped the area around the building to direct water away from it, with new down pipes. There will be no more big clean-ups necessary and the Rec Hall can run as usual when it rains.
The contractors also added a sink with a drain for the existing tap, two new windows, a new door and other minor repairs.
CAYLUS made all this possible by allowing Youth and Communities to repurpose funding for the project.
