THE Glencoe Sports and Recreation Reserve will undergo a major upgrade later this year thanks to the support of a $29,800 State Government grant, as well the Glencoe Campdraft Association, Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall announced today.
Members of the reserve trust committee were pleased to receive support from the government’s Public Reserve Management Fund (PRMF) and are planning to replace a well-loved but worn-out timber and iron shelter shed with a lockable, powered and weatherproof shed.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall recently met with reserve trust and campdraft association members at the grounds to review the plans.
“These grounds see a lot of use over the year, including the annual pony club gymkhana, the Glencoe Campdraft and the Cattle Dog Trails, each one attracting hundreds of people, vehicles and animals,” Mr Marshall said.
“It is terrific to see the user groups supporting the reserve trust committee in such a strong and positive way, and because of that relationship, the new shelter shed will be a wonderful addition to the other improvements on this ground.”
Mr Marshall visited the grounds last week and met with reserve trust member, Richard Gilder, and Glencoe Campdraft president Brad Martin with committee member Renata Martin.
Mr Gilder said the improvements are planned to better cater for the user groups and he welcomed the interest that those groups have in the grounds.
“Being a trustee for these types of facilities would be far more difficult without the strong support of the regular users of the grounds,” Mr Gilder said.
“The Glencoe and District community really enjoy welcoming visitors from all over the place and the new shed will mean we can better cater for dinners, provide a more comfortable aspect and improve the look of the grounds.
“We are all planning to get stuck into the job straight away and hope to have the new shed up and going in time for the annual cattle dog trails on the weekend on the 5 and 6 November.”
