A budget of $50,000 has been made available to kick start maintenance work at Headon Stadium in July. The money will come from Matamata-Piako District Council’s community purposes fund. An additional $1.5m had already been allocated in the draft long term plan. The council voted to go ahead with the deferred maintenance and renewal work in December. It would also work with Matamata Futures Trust to progress a plan for a new indoor sports complex.
