IMPORTANT CLUB NEWS
Hi Everyone Just a quick update on our attendance at the monthly meeting of councillors at the City of Tea Tree Gully, on Tuesday 25th August.
Firstly thanks to all of you who took the time to attend, it showed the council we have huge community support and a diverse membership. In short the council has agreed to fund themselves stage 1 (at a cost of $334,000) of our much needed renovations to upgrade the toilet facilities, install a referee’s specific change room complete with shower and toilet, install 2 more change rooms with shower and toilet facilities and install toilets into our existing change rooms – this will be within the current storage areas at the back of the clubrooms.
The council has committed to an additional $500,000 for 50% of renovations stage 2 to the clubroom area. This will include new kitchen and canteen, installation of walk in freezer and fridge and a boardroom. The club will work together with council over the next 12 months for an extra $500,000 in grants from state and federal governments to fund the remainder required for completion. Importantly the final part of our submission on the feasibility study was for the grounds to be upgraded in its classification from its current public reserve to District Sporting Field level, this might not sound important however it now ensures the council allocates extra funds for grounds keeping maintenance specific for Richardson Reserve.
The club has committed funds for a new light tower onto the school oval to ease the pressure on the main pitches and will continue to use resources available to us to ensure we have better playing surfaces. Our fantastic sponsors have committed to the club for future developments and be sure it doesn’t matter how much or how little, we appreciate all efforts given to the Modbury Vista Soccer Club from valued sponsors and members.
The club is once again holding the 7 aside competition this year from October 23rd running through to December 18th, special thanks to Benefitness at Surrey Downs for their support for the 7aside competition.
All enquiries for your 7aside team to Zack Jackman at firstname.lastname@example.org Once again thanks for support last Tuesday and ongoing in the future.
Regards Brendan Jackman
Chairman Modbury Vista Soccer Club
