FRANKSTON Council is one of eight Victorian councils receiving support from Vichealth to help make water the “drink of choice” at local sporting facilities. Frankston mayor Michael O’Reilly said it was “time for parents to really think about what their children were drinking when they participated in local sport.” “It’s concerning to find that more than half the Frankston City population is overweight or obese and the dental health of children within the Frankston region is poorer than the Victorian average,” he said. “Most people attend a sports facility for their general health and fitness, so offering lots of sugary drinks is counterproductive to that and we’re finding the community support this.” Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre, Pines Forest Aquatic Centre, Frankston District Netball Association, Ballam Park Athletics Centre, Peninsula Strikers Junior Soccer Club, Long Island Cricket Club, Karingal Football Netball Club, Karingal Bulls Junior Football Club, Carrum Downs Auskick, Carrum Downs Junior Football Club, Southern United Soccer Club, Frankston Dolphins Junior Football Club, and Baden Powell Cricket Club will be participating in the program. Cr O’Reilly said it will see “simple changes like reducing the size of sugary drinks, introducing sugar-free varieties, and ensuring healthy options like water are in the most prominent position in the drink fridges, ensures we’re on our way to a healthier Frankston.”

THE Big Picture Fest will return to Frankston for the second consecutive year, bringing along musicians, street artists, and a range of food trucks. The event will kick off with a “Block Party” on 22 March at Stiebel Place and Gallery Lane. Multi instrumentalist Will Cuming, known as LANKS,

set to kick things off with a performance. A roving performance from the Illuminated Angels, presented by Born is a Taxi is also set to entertain visitors. Live street art painting will then be on display for the entire weekend, with free daily walking tours. More infor-

Sports spending in Dunkley DUNKLEY MP Chris Crewther has announced two local clubs will receive funding boosts this week, with Delacombe Park and the Langwarrin Tennis Club collecting cash. Mr Crewther said “I was pleased to meet with Sports Minister Senator Bridget McKenzie in Parliament to confirm $499,000 budgeted Federal Liberal Nationals Government funds for a massive lighting and electrical project at Delacombe Park, Frankston South, with lighting for both the soccer field and for cricket/ soccer training facilities.” “I’m also proud to have announced over $163,000 I’ve secured from the Federal Liberal Nationals Government for the redevelopment of Langwarrin Tennis Club. This will mean multiple resurfaced courts, lighting and more, and is terrific for local tennis players, young people and the Langwarrin community.” Mr Crewther announced last year $3 million in budgeted funds for Lloyd Park in Langwarrin. The state Liberals also committed to providing funding if elected, and Frankston Council was asked to contribute. The Liberals lost the state election, and no announcement of funding has been made by Frankston Council.
