The Marrar Football and Netball Club have landed in their new home ‘The Hanger’.
The new facilities were officially opened by the Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke, which were supported by three NSW Government grants:
- $275,000 from the Stronger Country Communities fund to upgrade the Langtry Oval amenities
- $3,000 from the 2020 Community Building Partnership for heating/air conditioning
- $4,482 from the Sports Grants for security cameras and a PA system
Ms Cooke said it was clear the Marrar community had put time and effort in to the new space.
“This amazing facility has given the club a meeting place, spectator seating, club rooms and facilities for the netballers,” Ms Cooke said.
“It’s going to allow more people to enjoy local sport and shows the NSW Government’s commitment to strengthening our regional communities.”
“It’s such a joy to see local sport return and for the Marrar Bombers to have this new space to celebrate, the club should be very proud of what they have achieved here.”
Marrar Football and Netball Club President John Carroll said the community had come together to get the facilities finished.
“Marrar is a small community, so this is so important. This is huge for the club, our old facility had virtually nothing for our netballers so it’s so great we have this now,” Mr Carroll said.
“It’s wonderful to have a sheltered area people can come and watch the footy and hopefully see the Bombers win.”
“So many people volunteered their time to get this work finished. We’ve ended up with a great facility and everyone is very proud.”
