Koroit Bowls Club will soon be enjoying modern sports facilities thanks to a funding boost from the Andrews Labor Government.
In Koroit today, Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney joined members of the Koroit Bowls Club to announce a $180,000 Community Sports Infrastructure Fund grant to deliver the Koroit Bowling Club Change Rooms and Amenities Project.
The project will improve the club’s existing rooms and provide a more accessible and amenable change room environment. It will include the construction of female and male change rooms, a universal unisex toilet with a shower and an accessible path of travel to the building.
The Koroit Bowling Club were among grant recipients in the new round of the Labor Government’s $180 million Community Sports Infrastructure Fund.
Victorian sports clubs are the lifeblood of our communities and they deserve modern, accessible and safe facilities – the Labor Government is delivering those facilities through its Community Sports Infrastructure Fund.
The fund is developing new sport and active recreation facilities and rejuvenating tired grounds and ageing clubrooms across the state.
In this round of the Community Sports Infrastructure Fund, over 90 projects will be supported across Victoria thanks to a $60 million boost from the Victorian Budget 2018/19.
It’s part of our commitment to promoting sports and active recreation and encouraging all Victorians to get out there and get active.
Across Victoria we’ve already invested $420 million in community sport and recreation facilities and added more than half a billion dollars in the Victorian Budget 2018/19 to support sport across all levels.
Ms Tierney acknowledged Moyne Shire Council and the Koroit Bowls Club for their commitment and financial contribution to the project.
