Pledge to im­prove sports clubs

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

PREMIER Colin Bar­nett has pledged $750,000 worth of up­grades to in­nercity sport­ing clubs this month, ahead of the March State Elec­tion.

Mr Bar­nett said sport­ing clubs were the “lifeblood” of com­mu­ni­ties.

The Floreat Athena Soc­cer Club will get $250,000 for its build­ing and flood­lights fund, as ex­ist­ing lights are not strong enough for night matches.

Up­grades range from fences and new kitchens through to big­ger jobs such as flood­lights, resur­fac­ing and in­stalling dis­abled toi­lets.

The in­ter­sec­tion is set to re­ceive a sig­nif­i­cant up­grade.
