Labor to fund sporting facilities upgrade at Morris Reserve

An Andrews Labor Government will upgrade sports facilities at Morris Reserve in Coburg West.

Member for Brunswick, Jane Garrett, today announced the news to junior sporting club members and parents at the ground.

Victorian Labor’s $500,000 commitment for Morris Reserve will enable the building of new change rooms including female amenities, improvements to cricket training facilities, netball facilities and the lengthening of the oval.

Specifically, this investment in lengthening the oval will make it compliant for the EDFL matches in the future and the improvements will better utilise the space available at the reserve to meet the burgeoning growth for local sport particularly for juniors and girls.

Quotes attributable to Jane Garrett, Member for Brunswick:

“West Coburg Sports Club is a fantastic example of local community participation, which also brings together a vast array of sports – football, netball, athletics, cricket and softball.”

“Hundreds of families benefit from the tireless hours of hard work of this club and Victorian Labor is very proud to commit to supporting these improvements, particularly for juniors and girls.”

“This investment will allow more participation in local sport for local families.”
