AFL Goulburn Murray would like to congratulate Nagambie Football Netball Club for securing funding for their facility developments through the support of the Country Football Netball Program.
Nagambie’s recreation reserve and long awaited deep water boat ramp came a step closer last week with a funding announcement yesterday by Jaclyn Symes (MLC, Northern Victoria).
Strathbogie Shire Council, in conjunction with the Victorian Government, held a press conference in Nagambie to announce the funding being made for the upgrade to Nagambie Recreation Reserve and for a new Deep Water Boat Ramp.
In attendance were Strathbogie Shire mayor Amanda McCalren, council chief executive officer Steve Crawcour, chair of the Nagambie Recreation Reserve Ian Clinch and chair of Go Nagambie, Tim Goodacre.
Council had allocated $250,000 for the recreation reserve upgrade and $395,000 for the deep water boat ramp.
The Andrews Labor Government is contributing $294,795 to the Loddings Lane boat ramp project through the Boating Safety and Facilities Program and $100,000 to the Nagamabie Recreation Reserve redevelopment through the Country Football Netball Program.
The boat ramp, with road access from Loddings Lane, will be supported with car and trailer parking, landscaping, boat landing, road access and signage.
Nagambie Recreation Reserve will have the redevelopment of female and male change rooms, umpire rooms, toilets and shower facilities, new all abilities toilet and shower facilities and a baby change room.
The project will allow for the development of a female football team and additional junior participation.
“We wish to thank the Victorian Government and congratulate the Strathbogie Shire Council, Martin Gleeson and his team from AFL Goulburn Murray, the Kyabram District Football Netball League and Nagambie Football Club for embarking on such an important project to redevelop the female and male player change and umpire rooms, toilets and shower facilities. The project will also provide a new all abilities toilet and shower facility, incorporating a baby change area,” Nagambie Football Club said.
