After overcoming the disasters of 2017, Murwillumbah FC have turned their focus into improving their current facilities for their members.
The club recently completed a renovation on their clubrooms and changing rooms in 2016, but they are not going to stop there.
They are actively speaking to council for a master plan for their home ground base. The plan involves fencing of both fields, formalising their car parks and improving their facilities overall.
With discussions beginning earlier this year, the top priority for the club and the Tweed Council is to improve value for their stakeholders and members
Club President, Darren McKay, said that as a result of the floods and fire the time is right.
“The time is right to complete a project like this. As a consequence of what has happened, we are in advanced talks to make it happen.”
The project still in its early days is set to be a short-medium term longeth, with a target period of five years set out.
“We are looking at the steps we need to take to execute a project like this. We will have to wait for appropriate funding and release of funds to make it happen,” said McKay.
It is safe to say that after what the club and its members have been through, the changes will be ones that will be greatly accepted and appreciated by all!
