  • Wally Tew Reserve field lighting installation completed
  • Project will provide a safe training and playing environment for players
  • The Coalition Government fully funded the $141,775 project

The Wally Tew Reserve will now be able to host more sporting events after scoring new field lights thanks to a grant from the Coalition Government.

Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government John McVeigh said the new lighting would be match standard to allow night games.

“The Coalition Government is proud to support projects like this that bring multiple benefits to a region, ranging from a boost to the local economy through job creation, to investing in grassroots sport to support our future stars,” Dr McVeigh said.

Federal Member for Aston Alan Tudge said the new lighting would be great for fundraising purposes.

“These floodlights will increase sports participation in the community by providing a safe training and playing environment for players and allowing a larger number of games to be played,” Mr Tudge said.

“By securing additional games throughout the year, this project will bring in a greater number of spectators, which will enhance fundraising opportunities for local clubs.”

The Coalition Government fully funded the $141,775 project which supported eight jobs during construction.
