Adjournment - Miners Rest sports facility

03 August 2023

Martha HAYLETT (Ripon) (17:13): (272)

My adjournment matter tonight is for the attention of the Minister for Community Sport. The action I seek is that the minister joins me in my electorate of Ripon to visit the site of the future Miners Rest sports facility.

The brand new facility will be a game changer for Miners Rest, finally bringing community sport to the heart of the growing community in Ballarat’s north. It will include a competition-grade oval, a sports pavilion, change rooms, amenities, car parking and more. The facility will mean Miners Rest kids and locals of all ages will be able to play sports close to home, and it will mean we can get a local footy club established as well.

I welcome the opportunity to visit the site with the minister and introduce her to the hardworking locals that fought for this facility for current and future generations of Miners Rest residents.
