Nyora Rec Reserve upgrade on agenda

The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien will work with the Nyora community to progress new club rooms, social club and a community hub at the Nyora Recreation Reserve.

Plans for the new facilities were a topic of conversation as Mr O’Brien held his regular mobile office visit to Nyora, Loch and Poowong last week. Mr O’Brien met with the recreation reserve’s Brett Hume and examined initial plans for a two-stage upgrade.

“I visited the Nyora Rec Reserve change rooms last year and highlighted the fact that they are in a poor state.

“It is one of many sporting facilities across Gippsland that need upgrades but instead the Andrews Labor Government is giving $225 million to the AFL to renovate Marvel Stadium.

“The Nyora facility is used by football, cricket and other local sporting and community groups but the change rooms are no longer fit for purpose.

“I’ll be happy to support applications for funding for new change rooms and also a greatly expanded social club facility that could also operate as a local community hub.”

Mr O’Brien also had constituent meetings in Loch and Poowong covering issues from local health services, to transport and energy.

“I’m a firm believer in the importance of being available to meet people in their own communities and see their issues first-hand.

“The mobile office visits give me that opportunity and it was great to hear from my constituents on some of these important issues, many of which I’ll now be following up with the Andrews Labor Government.”

Mr O’Brien said he was available for appointments with constituents at any time and he could be contacted through his office on 5144 1987.
