Lighting for local sports
Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead has joined members of the Old Bar Clams Rugby Club to announce $100,000 in funding for new lights at the EG Trad Sport Fields.
funding toward the lighting of this sporting field is enormously appreciated and will ensure they are more efficient by reducing impacts caused by overuse of other local fields,” Mr Bromhead said.
“I’m excited to be able to support Mid Coast Council and the local community in having installed the much needed lighting at this particular field.
“It will relieve the other sporting fields in the area by sharing the night participation.
“Old Bar community is a proactive vibrant community, one of the fastest growing areas in the state, and there is a continual call for the upgrade of the sporting areas in the village,” Mr Bromhead said.
Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres joined Mr Bromhead in congratulating the Old Bar Clams Rugby Club.
“The funding from the NSW Government’s Department of Sport aims to increase regular and on-going participation opportunities in sport and active recreation by encouraging more people to get moving and become active in their local communities,” Minister Ayres said.
“From many years of being involved with local sports clubs I know how important these grants are to our communities by providing the opportunity to attract new members and increase participation.
“Sport is the lifeblood of communities across the length and breadth of NSW and this funding will encourage people of all ages and abilities to get involved,” Mr Ayres said.
