Local Clubs Are On The Money
The 2018 State Government’s Community Building Partnership Program has been fruitful for some AFL Hunter-Central Coast clubs, with 4 clubs securing grant money to assist with some exciting projects.
Killarney Vale were successful with funding for window treatment of their clubhouse, Port Stephens secured funds for shower cubicles, whilst both Cardiff and Singleton received money towards electronic scoreboards.
The new window treatment for the 2nd story of the Adelaide Street Oval clubhouse will enhance viewing and safety for officials, sponsors and supporters. Killarney Vale President, Paul Forster, is extremely appreciative of the State Government’s support. “Thanks to David Mehan Member for the Entrance who has been a long time supporter of our Club and to the State Government for the funds to achieve another much needed improvement to our football community facility.”
New Port Stephens President, Darren McKimm, is excited about the growth of female football, and the new female friendly shower cubicles will allow female players the necessary privacy after training and games. “Kate Washington MP contacted the club to inform us that she would lobby the State Government to get final approval. Kate personally contacted the club to confirm funding was successful and the project can go ahead. The club appreciated the time Kate put into helping us in this instance.”
Thanks to all clubs who continue to be proactive in upgrading their facilities, for the benefit of all players, officials and spectators.
