New Clubrooms Project

The Council have now finalised all the paperwork and have voted unanimously to officially approve the Stadium. Congratulations to Big River Developments who have been announced as the builder.                                                                                                                                                                                                            

The site is off limits to the public. Please keep the dirt road leading up to the Stadium site clear, so that workers have access for their vehicles and equipment. Thank you.
