Dunsborough Sharks Football Club officially open the John Edwards Pavilion

The Dunsborough Sharks Football Club celebrated the official opening of their newly upgraded club house on Sunday.

Club president Mark Delane said the upgraded facility was great for the community and provided a venue they could look forward to using for the next 20 years.

"The premises provides a real sense of community which is what Aussie Rules footy is all about in a little country town," he said.

"We had a fantastic team of fundraisers at the club who organised events, quiz nights, raffles, discos and a 100 club sponsorship arrangement to make this happen," he said.

"Then we had builders, suppliers and services donate their time, labor and materials.

"There were more than 40 individuals and businesses which directly delivered more than thousands of dollars each.

"It is amazing, and knowing it is for the community makes a big difference to have a space where they can hold events and functions."

The John Edwards Pavilion was officially opened by City of Busselton deputy mayor John McCallum, which contributed $125,000 towards the project.

Mr McCallum said the extensions provided an additional 137 square metres of club room and included an indoor function area, veranda and upgrades to the bar and kitchen.

The city will also install CCTV to deter vandalism at the premises.

"I would like to acknowledge the excellent contribution made be the city's Facility, Property and Community Development teams," Mr McCallum said.

"I extend my congratulations to the Dunsborough Football Club and to those who have contributed to the successful completion of the pavilion upgrades.

"I thank community members and business sponsors who have contributed to the Dunsborough Football Club, to make this happen, you have all done a good job.

"We have some talented young sporting stars growing their careers right here and I look forward to the bright future this facility holds."
