The committee has commenced the process to motivate for a long overdue investment into our Athletics facility. A recent survey of members has overwhelmingly indicated their support for a collaborative process to work with all levels of government and the local community to improve the standard of the track. Our athletes deserve a safe and modern facility.
We have spoken with council and Little Athletics Victoria and are currently working on a business plan to support the necessary investment. It may take a while, but with consultation and careful planning we expect to get a good result.
So keep an eye out for our petition, and check in with our Facebook page and website for updates. We are looking for your support as we progress on this ambitious project.
