LABOR GOVERNMENT DELIVERING ON ITS COMMITMENTS IN BARWON HEADS

The Andrews Labor Government is delivering on a key election commitment to upgrade Barwon Heads Village Park.

Today, Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville joined Barwon Heads Cricket Club members to confirm the Government’s commitment to give local players the modern facilities they deserve.

The Labor Government’s $100,000 investment includes the design and construction of spectator shelter, so that more supporters and families can watch the club in action. Cricket is Australia’s national summer pastime, but it’s important to seek refuge from the hot sun.

The Labor Government is committed to giving all Victorians access to safe, modern sport and recreation facilities. Labor promised Barwon Heads the facilities they wanted, and that’s what the Government is delivering.

Local communities want safe, welcoming sports facilities where they can get together and improve their health and wellbeing, and local clubs want the resources they need to welcome new additions.

The Labor Government’s investment is giving the Barwon Heads Cricket Club new opportunities to succeed.

The Labor Government’s $100 million Community Sports Infrastructure Fund is giving communities all over Victoria the world-class facilities they deserve.

Quotes attributable to Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville:

“We promised Barwon Heads cricket fans they will be able to watch the action in style and we’re delivering on that promise.”

“Watching cricket in the summer is great, but it’s important to seek plenty of shade and protect yourself from the sun.”

Quotes attributable to Minister for Sport, John Eren:

“The Andrews Labor Government is giving communities across Victoria more access to the best sport and recreation facilities, because healthy communities means a stronger state.”
