BRIAN MITCHELL MP WELCOMES FUNDING FOR BRIDGEWATER’S WEILY PARK
28 Mar 2019
Brighton Council will receive $192,000 through the federal Community Sports Infrastructure grant program for Weily Park Oval in Bridgewater, which will provide the Council with the funds to upgrade the existing facilities.
The program provides financial support to projects that improve existing sport infrastructure and encourage greater community participation in sport and activities and foster safer and more inclusive environments in sporting communities.
Mr Mitchell was delighted to support the Council’s application and is pleased to see its success. The oval is used by multiple sporting clubs and Mr Mitchell is pleased their contributions in encouraging physical and mental well-being in the Brighton region are being recognised.
Recently, Mr Mitchell visited the oval where he joined Brighton council Mayor, Tony Foster, council General Manager Ron Sanderson and representatives from local sport clubs and schools to see the grounds and discuss how this funding will help the council and clubs expand their capability.
“This is a good outcome for the Brighton council and local clubs and schools. I am looking forward to the upgrades taking place and improving Weily Park,” said Mr Mitchell.
“Community well-being is important to Labor and we recognise that being outside, participating in sport not only builds healthier Tasmanians but also creates stronger and more inclusive communities.”
