Construction Update #2

Friday 25 June 2021

Since the last update, the change rooms have finally been put together! Electricity was turned on last week, and plumbing to be completed hopefully by the 28th June.

The recent storms brought down a few trees at the reserve, including a large gum next to the netball rooms that damaged the power lines to the netball rooms. Thankfully we were supplied with a generator until the linesmen reconnected the power on Monday 21st June.

 

Demolition UPDATE: Demolition of the current pavilion is scheduled for the beginning of August.

 

Construction Update #1

Friday 18 June 2021

Full steam ahead on construction with the relocation of the club change rooms from one side of the oval to its current site next to the scoreboard. These will be used for training and for games while the old rooms are due to be demolished in late July, and during construction of the new complex.
