Flowerdale tennis and cricket club players will soon have upgraded change room facilities thanks to a $165,920 grant from the Andrews Labor Government.

The funding from Labor’s Community Sports Infrastructure Fund will ensure the nearly $250,000 Spring Valley Recreational Reserve project can get under way.

Labor Upper House Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, joined by Labor candidate for Eildon, Sally Brennan, representatives from Murrindindi Shire Council and local club representatives today on site to make the exciting announcement.

The project to be delivered by the Murrindindi Shire Council will ensure that the change rooms are brought up to modern standards and fit for purpose.

“Country communities love their sport and deserve quality facilities, I’m sure Flowerdale’s tennis and cricket players will welcome this development and it will allow their clubs to grow” Ms Symes said. 

Ms Brennan said the Andrews Labor Government is giving local communities like Flowerdale the facilities they need so more locals can participate in the sports they love.

“Labor’s Community Sports Infrastructure Fund has injected hundreds of thousands of dollars into the Eildon electorate and I’m so happy that it’s Flowerdale’s turn.”

“I look forward to seeing this important new project being enjoyed by locals and rejuvenating the Spring Valley Recreation Reserve,” she said.

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.
