Exciting day for Nagambie

14 February 2020

Users of the Nagambie Recreation Reserve will benefit from the official opening of the $250,000 revamp to its facilities.
The overhaul of the clubrooms in the town will allow more people within the community to utilise the reserve, with female friendly and unisex toilets just one of the upgrades.
Strathbogie Shire Mayor Cr Amanda McClaren said the redevelopment would additionally boost junior and female participation in sport at the well-utilised reserve.
“The female friendly and unisex additional toilets, as well as the new shower and change room facilities in the football and netball rooms, will take the recreation reserve to the next level for our community,’’ she said.
“The refurbishment also includes an all abilities toilet and shower facility and a designated baby change station, making it more user friendly for the young families in the community.
“The Nagambie Recreation Reserve has been in desperate need of these upgrades, so we are so pleased to officially open them to the public.’’
A designated umpire changing room complete with its own toilet and shower facilities have also been rolled out in the upgrade.
Cr McClaren said the $249,000 upgrade had been made possible with a $100,000 grant received from the State Government’s Country Football and Netball Program, $100,000 from the Strathbogie Shire Council, $30,000 from Bendigo Bank’s Nagambie Branch and in-kind support from local user groups.
“This has been a whole community project, that everyone involved from a Government to a grass roots level should be extremely proud of,’’ she said.
The Hon Jaclyn Symes MP, Minister for Regional Development, Agriculture and Resources, performed the official opening.
