NSW Labor will provide Budgewoi Bulldogs Rugby League Club with $120,000, to install flood lighting, as well as additional lighting to the existing poles at Halekulani Oval if it wins government on March 25.
This commitment was secured by Ms Yasmin Catley MP – Member for Swansea, who has previously supported the club in securing $1.3 million from the Stronger Country Communities Fund for irrigation and drainage works, and amenities upgrades.
Currently, the eastern mid-field does not posses flood lighting, which has prevented the club from hosting night games and training.
Lighting for this field will ensure the club can utilise two fields and provide opportunity for extra training and to hold night tournaments.
Ms Yasmin Catley MP – Member for Swansea said, “I am pleased that a NSW Labor Government will allocate $120,000 to the Budgewoi Bulldogs to install flood lighting, as well as additional lighting at Halekulani Oval”.
“This oval is home to the club; however, they have been prevented from using it for night training and games because of a lack of lighting”.
“With winter just around the corner, there is no doubt the oval needs better lighting”.
“It will truly be a great outcome for the local community if the lighting can be installed”.
“I was proud to be involved in organising this commitment, as well as supporting the club with the Stronger Countries Community Fund”.
Mr Matt Rogers – President Budgewoi Bulldogs said ” “We are so pleased with the help received from Yasmin and her team. Our facilities are so below par its not funny and Yasmin and team jumped into action immediately after contact from our club. Our whole club is very excited about the plans and our future”.
