nounced on Friday the Nyora
Recreation Reserve would re-
ceive a $100,000 grant under
the State Government’s Com-
munity Sports Infrastructure
The funding will support
South Gippsland Shire Coun-
cil’s $55,000 contribution and
a $55,000 community contri-
The investment will include
installation of an automatic
sprinkler system, converting
an existing variety of grass sur-
face to santa ana grass and an
introduction of seasonal rye
grass in winter months to pro-
tect the santa ana grass.
The funding announcement
coincided with the official
opening of the new Nyora and
Koonwarra practice nets that
were funded through a $49,000
council contribution, $100,000
contribution from the Commu-

and a $48,000 community con-
South Gippsland Shire May-
or Councillor Ray Argento said
that the reserve has required
significant seasonal watering to
maintain grass cover over the
summer and winter periods.
“This requires five to six days
per week over a 10 to 12 week
period for volunteers to manu-

ing in 25,000 litres being used
each day with over 400 hours
of volunteer labour expended
on the task.
“This upgrade will not only
provide a recreation reserve
that is improved for use by the
community but will reduce the
amount of labour required by
volunteers to manually irrigate
the ground, allowing them to
use these resources for other
Cricket Victoria’s chief ex-

Cricket Victoria’s strong part-

Shire Council is assisting local
worked to upgrade a range of
important facilities. It is also
helping to grow the number of
players, coaches, umpires and
volunteers further strengthen-
ing cricket’s position as a sport
for all Victorians.
“Cricket clubs are the life-
blood of our suburbs and
towns,” Dodemaide said.
“They are where communi-
ties get together, locals embrace
healthy and active lifestyles and
kids enjoy special memories
that stay with them for life.”
At the official opening of the
Koonwarra nets, Koonwarra-
Leongatha RSL president Paris
Buckley said the facilities are
already proving popular, not
just with club members, but
the wider community.
“The old nets were embar-
rassing to say the least, but
we’re overjoyed with the fin-
He thanked the council’s
grants officer Penni Ellicott
for her support, club mem-
bers Jodi and Nick Arnup for
driving the project and the

“This facility ensures the
club’s future for the years to
come,” he said.
