Turnbull Liberal team commits $168,000 for South Barwon Football Netball Club

Federal Member for Corangamite, Sarah Henderson, today announced that a re-elected Turnbull Government will commit up to $168,000 to upgrade the change rooms and spectator facilities at McDonald Reserve, Belmont.

Ms Henderson was delighted to make the announcement at McDonald Reserve, the home of the South Barwon Football and Netball Club.

“This funding commitment will support the renovation of the visitors change rooms and improvements to spectator amenity,” said Ms Henderson.

“The project includes expansion of the visitors change rooms with the addition of new shower and toilet facilities, as well as a new verandah to protect spectators from the elements.

“As a growing club, South Barwon Football and Netball Club fields 40 teams across junior and senior football and netball. Having discussed these redevelopment plans with the club, I am proud to be making this commitment today.

“Whether it’s investing in the Shell Rd Reserve pavilion in Ocean Grove, re-developing Colac Central Reserve or delivering new lights for Burdoo Reserve, the Turnbull Government has a proud track record of delivering for Corangamite community and sporting infrastructure projects.

I am delighted to make this election commitment which is in addition to the following commitments made over recent weeks:

  • $180,000 for Barwon Heads netball courts at Howard Harmer Reserve;
  • $5 million for Anam Cara Community Hospice;
  • Four new mobile base stations at Aireys Inlet, Anglesea, Bellbrae and Birregurra;
  • Almost $1 million for Colac CBD Entrances project and
  • Two Green Army projects for Queenscliff foreshore and Pt Lonsdale Lighthouse Reserve
  • $220,000 for new lights at Inverleigh Reserve

Only the Turnbull Coalition Team has a Plan for a Strong New economy, carefully structured to provide jobs and growth and a secure future for local families.
