Works to upgrade and improve facilities at the Flynn Recreation Reserve are progressing well.
Local MP Darren Chester said the $1.2 million project included a rebuild of the Flynn Hall and upgrading amenities at the recreation reserve.
“The old Flynn Hall was unfit for purpose and meant the community didn’t have a place to come together, this new hall will allow them to gather during times of emergencies and for celebrations,” Mr Chester said.
“Kitchen cabinetry and panelling has been installed in the hall, as well as septic works and the demolition of the tennis courts in preparation for new ones.
“The team at Langden Construction have not wasted any time ensuring the project is completed quickly for the community to enjoy.”
Mr Chester said construction was expected to be complete by mid-April 2021.
“The community have advocated for this project for a long time and there is a lot of excitement as the completion gets closer,” Mr Chester said.
“A community hall is the centre of small communities and having an accessible and user-friendly facility will bring so much to Flynn residents.”
The Federal Government is providing $1.2 million through its Drought Communities Program. More than $800,000 for the rebuild of the hall and $450,000 for auxiliary works to Flynn Recreation Reserve facilities.
Latrobe City Council is administering the project.
