The Andrews Labor Government is putting families first by giving the Woorndoo community the great sport and recreation facilities it deserves.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney today announced the Moyne Shire is set to benefit from the Labor Government’s Community Sports Infrastructure Fund by receiving an $80,000 grant for the Woorndoo Netball Change Facility Upgrade.
The project provides for the construction of new home and away change rooms for the Woorndoo-Mortlake Netball Club. The new building will include shower and toilet amenities, first aid room, accessible toilet and covered area for spectators at the Woorndoo Recreation Reserve.
Grassroots sports clubs are the lifeblood of our towns. They are where communities get together, locals embrace healthy and active lifestyles and kids enjoy special memories that stay with them for life.
Women and girls are joining grassroots sport in record numbers, but too often their facilities are rundown or non-existent. We’re changing that, because everyone deserves equal facilities.
Victoria is the sporting state, and it doesn’t happen by chance. We’re upgrading grassroots facilities all over the state, because it changes people’s lives for the better.
