The Federal Member for Bonner, Ross Vasta has welcomed the investment into local sporting infrastructure as part of the second $30 million round of the Coalition’s Community Sport Infrastructure Program.
Mr Vasta secured $187,686 for Mt Gravatt Vultures AFL club to upgrade night lighting, install field irrigation systems and construct coaching boxes and spectator facilities.
Mr Vasta said the Coalition understands that our success and prowess as a sporting nation begins with grassroots organisations. This is why we’ve focused our investment into local grassroots sporting facilities such as the Mt Gravatt Vultures.
“Investing in grassroots sport helps to drive increased participation and promotes social, health and community benefits. As well as this I want to ensure that our local families and youngsters have access to the best sporting facilities possible right here in Bonner,” Mr Vasta said.
“I’m thrilled to have been able to secure this funding for the Vultures; it means the club can now host night time matches and they will be able to further enhance the quality of the pitch for players and competitors. Go Vultures!”
