New Lovegrove sports pavilion opened

Shire of Murray Council has today officially opened the new $3.8 million Lovegrove Sports Pavilion.

Shire President, David Bolt, said the new pavilion and facilities will create more sporting opportunities with a new clubhouse, expanded oval and carpark to support both cricket and
hockey.

“At the Shire of Murray, our Council Plan sets five priority aspirations – one of these being ‘People’. This means we are working to deliver outcomes that enable an active and healthy community,” said Mr Bolt.

“The opening of this brand-new, high-quality sports facility in Pinjarra supports this aspiration,” he said.

“Sport facilities are a cornerstone of a local community. Their importance cannot be underestimated as they offer a place for people to come together and connect over shared interests; providing vast benefits to local residents’ mental and physical wellbeing.

“The opening of Lovegrove Sports Pavilion will provide better access to sports facilities to the entire community, and in particular enable more access for women and young people interested in cricket and hockey.”

The new pavilion is suitable for cricket and hockey and creates a precinct with the Pinjarra Bowls Club just next door. It will be the new home of Pinjarra Cricket Club and Pinjarra
Hockey Club.

The facility was funded through the Australia Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, State Government’s Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Lotterywest, Australian Cricket Infrastructure Fund, Alcoa and the Shire of Murray.

“To all our funding partners and major sponsors, we extend our very sincerest thanks and
appreciation,” said Mr Bolt.
