Labor commitment to Shell Rd Scoreboard

Lisa Neville, the Member for Bellarine, has announced a commitment of $60,000 for an external, electronic scoreboard at the Shell Road reserve.

Ms Neville said, “I’m delighted to be able to announce that, if elected in November, an Andrews Labor Government will commit $60,000 for an electronic scoreboard at the Shell Road reserve.

“The development of the sports precinct in Shell Rd has been a project I have strongly supported as the Member for Bellarine.

“Stage 1 of the project, including the aquatic centre and soccer fields, was funded and completed by the City of Greater Geelong in partnership with the former Labor Government.

“Council and the Federal Government are now providing funding for the football ovals.

“But the Ocean Grove Football & Netball Club has said that without a modern, electronic scoreboard they won’t be able to play there.

“A future Labor Government will provide the $60,000 needed to ensure they have the scoreboard needed to take full advantage of the new facilities at Shell Road.

“It is vital that our young people have the opportunity to participate and enjoy sporting activity in their local community.

“The Shell Road reserve is a vital community asset for the increasing numbers of young families living in Ocean Grove and the surrounding area.

“I’m pleased to make this commitment to further support the development at Shell Road and the great work of the Ocean Grove Football & Netball Club in our community,” Ms Neville said.
