Encounter Bay Rotarians were busy at Jaralde Park last weekend and it was not for their markets.

Club members gathered to construct a seaside shelter with a picnic table and benches near the barbecue at the park.

The three metre by three metre shelter has been professionally constructed by Terrain Group for maritime conditions and was erected on-site by a team of club members.

The shelter was originally proposed last year and the club has met with the Alexandrina Council to ensure compliance and support.

The facility, which cost more than $20,000, was entirely funded by the Rotary Club of Encounter Bay to acknowledge its ongoing activities in Jaralde Park, managing the Sunday markets and is totally separate to the council funded Goolwa Wharf redevelopment.

The club runs the Goolwa Wharf Market on the first and third Sundays of each month from 9am until 2pm.

The Rotary Club of Encounter Bay president Stuart Ellis said “the seaside shelter will provide a worthwhile and lasting amenity for the community and it will also serve as the market office when the Rotary markets are in operation.”
