Community partnership delivers new facility for Coolum netballers
Hot sun and pouring rain are no longer an issue for netball spectators at the Coolum Sporting Complex following the installation of a new shade structure.
The new infrastructure was made possible thanks to grants from Sunshine Coast Council and Marcoola Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank as well as fundraising by the Coolum District Netball Association.
Division 9 Councillor Steve Robinson said by working together and forming partnerships there were many opportunities for community groups to secure assistance with funding.
“Council is keen to support a wide range of not-for-profit community groups through various grant programs, but we can’t do it alone” Cr Robinson said.
“Following an on-site meeting with club president Judy Blackall, it was evident that the Coolum netball community needed financial assistance for this project.
“It’s great to see council, local business and the community working together to deliver this new shade sail which is much needed by the hundreds of netballers and spectators that visit the facility each week.”
