Bulla Adult Riders, Tullamarine Riding Club and Oaklands Horse and Driving Club will soon be enjoying modern sports facilities thanks to a funding boost from the Andrews Labor Government.

Member for Yuroke Ros Spence today announced that Hume City Council would receive a $200,000 contribution for a new pavilion at the Greenvale Equestrian Centre in the new round of the Labor Government’s $180 million Community Sports Infrastructure Fund.

This new pavilion will benefit the four clubs that use the centre by providing their members with a comfortable and secure place to prepare to ride for training and competitions.

The pavilion will provide the clubs with designated office space, allowing competitions to run more efficiently and scorers and judges will have a dedicated space to work, away from competitors and spectators.

Victorian sports clubs are the lifeblood of our communities and they deserve modern, accessible and safe facilities – the Labor Government is delivering those facilities through its Community Sports Infrastructure Fund.

The fund is developing new sport and active recreation facilities and rejuvenating tired grounds and ageing clubrooms across the state.

In this round of the Community Sports Infrastructure Fund, over 90 projects will be supported across Victoria thanks to a $60 million boost from the Victorian Budget 2018/19.

Ms Spence acknowledged Hume City Council for their strong and shared commitment to delivering improved sporting and community facilities in the Yuroke electorate.
