Cricketers in line for pavilion upgrade MORE than 2100 Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association players can look forward to their home at the RM Hooper Pavilion, Tuerong, getting a much needed refurbishment. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has committed $760,000 from its capital works program plus a $250,000 grant from Sport and Recreation Victoria’s community sports infrastructure fund for the project. The works have started and are expected to be completed in December. “This pavilion upgrade will include female change rooms and amenities, new kitchen and kiosk, first-aid room and additional storage space,” the mayor Cr Sam Hearn said. “This project is crucial to removing barriers to female sport participation.” Cr Kate Roper said the inclusion of female change rooms would “contribute towards the goal of an all-inclusive peninsula”. “Such a seemingly small act will have a large impact on those girls and women who use the

new space. We are supporting women in sport through providing inclusive and welcoming environments.” This project is part of the shire’s sports capacity plan and active sports strategy aimed at improving provision of sports and sporting infrastructure throughout the peninsula.

Flinders hall grant FLINDERS Civic Hall will receive $2.25 million as part of a state government upgrade of pavilions, playgrounds, community centres and other infrastructure in Melbourne’s fastest growing suburbs. The grant was among 28 projects to share in $25 million from the Growing Suburbs Fund which aims to support jobs and business through the coronavirus pandemic. The money complements a $2.7 billion state government building works program which includes $278 million in shovel-ready infrastructure projects to be delivered through local councils.
