Pakula in Wim­mera to cel­e­brate projects

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Vic­to­rian Sports Min­is­ter Mar­tin Pakula has of­fi­cially opened a new syn­thetic green at Horsham City Bowl­ing Club.

Mr Pakula was in the Wim­mera last week to cel­e­brate ma­jor projects that at­tracted State Gov­ern­ment fund­ing.

Four projects were in Horsham mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s sport­ing precincts.

Apart from the syn­thetic bowl­ing green, projects also in­cluded two new net­ball-ten­nis courts at Cen­tral Park, new flood­lights at Na­timuk show­ground and two multi-sport courts and a light­ing up­grade at Kal­kee re­serve.

The gov­ern­ment pro­vided more than $390,000 over­all for the projects through its Com­mu­nity Sports In­fra­struc­ture Fund and Coun­try Foot­ball and Net­ball Pro­gram.

“Horsham is a great ru­ral city and Na­timuk and Kal­kee are great Wim­mera towns. We’re proud to be pro­vid­ing mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties so peo­ple young and old can play their sport of choice,” Mr Pakula said.

“I’m sure bowl­ing, ten­nis, foot­ball and net­ball clubs will em­brace their new fa­cil­i­ties and wel­come more play­ers into their fold.”
