$25,000 sports facelift
THE Yamba Sports Complex is about to get a $25,000 facelift.
Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis announced $25,000 in funding to Clarence Valley Council under the NSW Governments Sport and Recreation Facility Grant Program to assist with the construction of new amenities at the Yamba Sports Complex.
Mr Gulaptis said the new amenities facility will consist of two public toilets with disabled access, two showers/change rooms, a first aid room, referees room, storage area, small two-storey media room and canteen facilities.
"The existing awning will also be removed by the local junior rugby league club which is also contributing funds towards this project," Mr Gulaptis said.
"This is great news for the Lower Clarence area and a welcome boost for sporting groups that use the fields within the Yamba Sports Complex.
"Access to modern and functional facilities increases the opportunity for participation and makes it easier for people to get involved in sport and recreation."
Mr Gulaptis said the Sport and Recreation Facility Grant Program benefited thousands of people across regional and rural NSW.
"From netball courts to skate parks, cricket pitches and swimming pools, this funding program assists in building new facilities and upgrading existing sports infrastructure like the new amenities at the Yamba Sports Complex," Mr Gulaptis said.
"I'm very confident the money will be well spent and the newly upgraded facilities will encourage more people to take up healthy sporting endeavours."
