MEMBERS of the Wangaratta community are invited to attend the official opening of the newly renovated Lions Club of Wangaratta Apex Road Safety School in Ryan Avenue on Saturday.

A formal handover will take place, as the Lions Club of Wangaratta will officially take over the management and operations of the facility from the Apex Club of Wangaratta.

Lions Club of Wangaratta president Ern Walder said he was hoping the opening would attract parents and their children, as well as members of the community who may have attended the facility as a child or who are interested in the facility.

According to Mr Walder, more than 200 hours of work have been put into the renovations of the facility, from meetings, refurbishment works and set up.

The Apex Club has been able to contribute close to $22,000 from its own fundraising towards the upgrade, which has included a new internal all access toilet, refitted and painted classroom, and a new kitchenette.

The opening will be held from 10am to 11.30am at the Ryan Avenue venue, with refreshments and a free barbecue available.
