The hard work of the Windsor Wolves was recognised today as they celebrated an “unofficial opening” of their grandstand, which was funded by the former Labor Government.
Despite the successful completion of the project, no official opening has ever been held, which is why today’s event is such an important milestone for the Wolves.
The $2.5 million of funding for the grandstand was part of the $29.5 million the former Labor Government invested in upgrading existing and building new community infrastructure across the Macquarie electorate.
In addition to the grandstand, the project included a new canteen, referees’ room, officials’ box, player dug out and public toilets.
These new facilities have improved the experience of more than 500 players across 40 teams, in addition to the thousands of spectators who come along to cheer on their team.
Labor has always believed that investment in community infrastructure is an important function of the national government.
Local communities deserve support.
Investment in these projects creates jobs, delivering an economic boost to local communities, while improving the quality of life for local residents.
