Wheels turning on Friendlies Oval Upgrade

Tuesday, 19 June, 2018

A steering committee, made up of representatives of the Friendlies Oval Committee and relevant Councillors and Council staff, have met for the first time to get the ball rolling on the Friendlies Oval upgrade.

Strathbogie Shire welcomed a $100,000 funding announcement in January from the Victorian Government’s Community Sports Infrastructure – Cricket Facilities Fund.

The upgrade will include the following items:

  • A new surface for the oval, including the widening and slight lengthening of the oval to create an even playing surface
  • Installation of a new watering system
  • Replacement of existing perimeter fencing with white picket fencing
  • Installation of three turf wickets.

The project plan, scoping and design are currently being developed and is forecast to go out to tender in the coming months.
