Pakula in Wimmera to celebrate projects
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.”
