The Padthaway Football Club has celebrated the opening of its new changeroom facilities.
The Padthaway Football Club and community changeroom facilities were funded by a $280,000 Federal Government Drought Communities Program.
Padthaway Football Club President Mic Grady was pleased with the new facilities.
“The Padthaway community would like to thank the Federal Government for their support, without the funding provided our project would have never got off the ground,” he said.
“This awesome facility has provided our town with new changerooms for our football club, new restrooms and disabled facilities for the town hall and changerooms for the netball club.
“The Padthaway football, netball and hall committees are extremely gratefully for the continuing faith and support Tony Pasin and the Federal Government have in Padthaway and rural Australia.”
Member for Barker Tony Pasin said the facilities were part of $1m in funding allocated to the Tatiara District Council for projects to boost the economy, social and community needs through the Drought Communities Program.
“Across Barker and across the nation our government is supporting grassroots sporting clubs upgrade infrastructure because we recognise the wider health, social and community benefits that come from greater activity and participating in sport,” Mr Pasin said.
“I congratulate the Padthaway Football and Netball Club on finalising this fantastic project.”
