New Lease Deal for Wanneroo DCC – Wanneroo Hockey Association & Liquor Licensing

(David Minear)

After well protracted negotiations we have finally come to an agreement with the CoW – Liquor Licensing – Wanneroo Hockey Association & W.D.C.C on a new lease agreement moving forward. 

The Wanneroo Hockey Association have relinquished their liquor license between May & October and we will have just the one license all year around under the name of the Wanneroo Districts Cricket Club. This in-turn guarantees the financial future of the Wanneroo Hockey Association, with them being able to utilize the bar & clubhouse on days and nights they were unable too previously under the previous license they had. 

The cricket club will now have revenue all year round with social darts on a Thursday nights attracting a lot of club members. Rather than the old stream of only six monthly revenue between October & March. The Wanneroo Hockey Association will now become members of the Wanneroo Districts Cricket Club and hold Members Cards like the Darts at all times while at the Club. The new lease agreement will reflect the changes by now having the Wanneroo Hockey Association sub-letting the premises off of W.D.C.C

Id like to say a massive thank you to the President of the Wanneroo Hockey Association, Shane Pollock & to our wonderful infrastructure specialist at the City of Wanneroo & Neil Scanes for all their help with getting this matter sorted.
