The Morrison Government is delivering more than $395,000 for two major sporting infrastructure projects to improve community sport on the Mornington Peninsula.
RJ Rowley Reserve in Rye will receive $245,972 for lighting upgrades, with Bunguyan Reserve in Tyabb to receive $150,000 towards stage two of pavilion redevelopment.
Liberal Member for Flinders, the Hon. Greg Hunt MP, said these projects would deliver improved community sporting facilities on the Mornington Peninsula.
“RJ Rowley Reserve and Bunguyan Reserve are central hubs for the Tyabb and Rye communities and the Liberal National Government is delivering funding to help improve these facilities,” Mr Hunt said.
“The Morrison Government has prioritised investment in local grassroots sport because we recognise the wider health, social and community benefits that come from greater activity and participating in sport.
“It will not only help provide improved facilities for the Rye Demons or Tyabb Yabbies, but for the community as a whole.
“It is a key priority of our Government to promote the social and health benefits of physical activity and sport. Our investment to upgrade sporting facilities and infrastructure will provide a real encouragement for those local residents not currently active.”
“Thanks to the Morrison Government’s responsible economic management and budget surplus, we are in a position to support these projects.
“Our strong economic management means that we can deliver the essential services that keep families on the Mornington Peninsula safe and well, and support the community groups who are the lifeblood of our communities.”
