Member for Ripon Louise Staley has today announced that an elected Liberal Government will deliver a major upgrade for Donaldson Park Sporting Complex.
Ms Staley announced that an elected Liberal Nationals Government would provide $1.3 million towards the development of a purpose-built sporting and community complex in Wedderburn’s Donaldson Park, home to the town’s football, netball, hockey and harness racing clubs.
“The new Donaldson Park Sporting Complex is a much needed sporting and community asset for the Wedderburn community,”
“The new complex will replace the facility’s three ageing pavilions and include social rooms, new kitchen, meeting room, kiosk, office, change rooms and trainers’ and first aid room,” Ms Staley said.
The announcement was welcomed by the Wedderburn Redbacks Committee, Wedderburn Harness Racing Committee and Loddon Shire Council.
Sharyn Lockhart, President Wedderburn Redbacks and Wedderburn Harness Racing Committee said, “The Donaldson Park Reserve Committee and so many members of the Wedderburn community have really fought for this upgrade, today’s announcement is fantastic and the upgrade will make such a difference for this important community facility.”
Loddon Shire Council Mayor, Cr Cheryl McKinnon said, “The Loddon Shire welcomes this funding commitment for our number one priority project. The revitalisation of Donaldson Park in Wedderburn will benefit the whole shire and the broader region.”
Ms Staley said, “The upgrade facilities will provide local sporting clubs and Wedderburn community with valuable sporting and community space. Donaldson Park Sporting Complex is used by players not only from Wedderburn but right across the Loddon District,”
“Loddon Shire Council and the Wedderburn Community have been calling for this much-needed upgrade for years and it is great news that an elected Liberal Government will be able to deliver this project for them,” Ms Staley said.
Only a Liberal Nationals Government will deliver this important project which will benefit the local Wedderburn sporting clubs and harness racing clubs.
