Works to transform Lucknow Recreation Reserve are now complete with the new change rooms, expanded club rooms and upgraded netball courts finished.
Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester said the new facilities were finished in time for this weekend’s first home game.
“Lucknow Football Netball Club now has a fantastic new asset that will serve the club and community for many years to come,” Mr Chester said.
“These new facilities are now equal to some of the best in Gippsland.
“Players, trainers and officials now have the amenities they deserve after many years of hard work.
“The facilities are now modern and fit for purpose and will cater for the growing number of female participants.”
Mr Chester said the new upgraded facilities would encourage more people to participate in sport in our local community.
“I look forward to the official opening of the new clubrooms which will be a major milestone in the club’s history,” Mr Chester said.
The redevelopment includes new changerooms, kitchen, canteen and toilet, as well as an upgrade of the social rooms.
The Federal Government provided $500,000 towards the project through the Community Infrastructure Grant program with East Gippsland Shire providing matching funding.
