$450,000 Infrastructure Grant Presented to Roselea FC by John Alexander, MP for Bennelong
As a grass roots community club we are delighted to have been awarded a $450,000 Infrastructure Grant presented by John Alexander, Bennelong MP on behalf of the federal Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities.
The Carlo Ovals are currently the worst in Parramatta LGA for playing surface and lighting and the 5th worst for club house and facilities. The grounds have; no irrigation or drainage casuing frquent closure from flooding and lighting of only 20LUX instead of a minimum standard of 50LUX for training and 100LUX for games.
Only yesterday a Roselea FC Mum was telling me" how disappointed her two boys were when the first game of the season was cancelled due to flooded Carlingford Ovals". This will soon become a frustration of the past.
For the last 18 months we have been working in the back ground, campaigning for improved playing conditions, lighting and club house facilities at the NSW Department of Education owned Carlingford Ovals 1, 2 & 3.
This grant is a fantastic first step for immediate remedial works to bring our dilapidated facilities up to a minimum national standard for surface and lighting for all our members to enjoy training and playing their football.
Our plan is for these remedial works to ensure short to medium term improvements in quality of football while we continue to work towards a first class Multi-Million dollar Multi-sport Community Facility (for more info click here).
We will keep you updated as the project progresses. We will also occasionally ask for your support to rally the troops and engage in project promotion activities, so when you hear the call get active and be involved. Nothing gets awareness to the powers that be like a crowd of support.
As a club we thank John Alexander for supporting our club and our community..
