Call out for sports aid

Melville Times - - News -

CITY of Melville coun­cil­lors will con­sider im­prov­ing fa­cil­i­ties at Mor­ris Buza­cott Re­serve at an up­com­ing meet­ing.

Win­delya Sports As­so­ci­a­tion (WSA), which is made up of Melville City Hockey Club, Kardinya Lakes Cricket Club, Kardinya Ju­nior Cricket Club and Melville Turf, is seek­ing sup­port for the project.

Ex­ist­ing clu­b­rooms would be re­pur­posed into four chang­ing rooms, as well as com­mu­nity meet­ing and stor­age space, plus a new clu­b­room with kitchen fa­cil­i­ties would be built along with a pa­tio to sup­port the cricket clubs.

The City would put $930,000 to­wards the project with com­mu­nity sport and recre­ation fa­cil­ity fund­ing pro­vid­ing $630,000, and WSA put­ting in $380,000.

The WSA is also seek­ing in prin­ci­ple sup­port from the City for a self-sup­port­ing loan, if there is any short­fall in fund­ing from the com­mu­nity sport­ing recre­ation fa­cil­i­ties fund.

At the Oc­to­ber 16 coun­cil meet­ing, the coun­cil was ad­vised to sup­port the WSA project.

At Tues­day’s coun­cil brief­ing ses­sion, WSA rep­re­sen­ta­tives talked about the need for im­proved fa­cil­i­ties at the re­serve.
