“This was one of my key election commitments to the Kyogle community and it is great that the funding has now been secured,” Ms Saffin said.
“The Club’s grounds are in one of the lowest parts of Kyogle and the upgraded drainage will enable the grounds to be back in action more quickly after heavy rain or flooding in the adjacent Richmond River.”
Kyogle Football Club Treasurer and Registrar Glenn Rose said the Club was very appreciative of the new funding.
“The soccer field and athletics oval are always the first to go under in a flood and the last to resurface, so this funding will allow us to improve our usage during wet periods and flooding events,” he said.
“This will benefit all soccer clubs and all schools in our region.”
