I have been approached by Gerringong Breakers to support their grant application for funds to upgrade the lighting and other projects within the grounds of the Athol Noble and Gerry Emery sporting fields.
I am more than happy to support Gerringong Breakers in their funding request. The proposed lighting project consists of the following:
Stage 1 - replace existing lighting with high power LED
Stage 2 - additional light pole at southern end of Athol Noble sporting grounds
Stage 3 - install LED area lighting in the northern car park
Gerringong Breakers Football Club currently has 326 members who use these facilities for training and competition games. A night games competition is also held throughout the week which attracts players and spectators from other clubs all using the car park which has no lighting at all.
The sporting grounds are shared between the Cricket, Football, Touch Football and Rugby League Clubs. Between all the clubs there are in excess of 1000 players using these facilities all throughout the year.
This funding request is for worthwhile projects that will benefit many within the wider community.
