Southern Highlands Hockey Centre

I am writing to ask you to make representations on behalf of our club members to the Chairman Clubs NSW in support of our local hockey association’s Club Grant application. 
Southern Highlands Hockey Inc. is raising funds to expand the Hockey Centre in Welby from one to two synthetic turf playing fields. This $1.3million project has secured $600,000 in community fundraising and a Wingecarribee Shire Council grant.  Our Category 3 Application for the $700,000 balance of the project is one of the final short-listed applications currently before the Club Grants assessment panel for consideration.  
Our club wholeheartedly supports the grant application to enable an elite-competition standard field with state-of-the-art accessibility to be constructed at the Welby Hockey Centre. The new synthetic surface will remove capacity constraints with the current single field usage being at saturation. 
We welcome the opportunity that this project gives to our community to expand sporting participation across a wide range of users in multiple sporting codes.  This project will greatly enhance our community sports hub in the Southern Highlands, allowing the Hockey Centre to double its capacity and be accessed by 2500 people per week. 
With Club Grant funding the project will be completed in early 2018.  It will provide more opportunities for people from across the district to enjoy a healthy, active life with stronger social connection and create new jobs.  
We ask that you urgently contact Clubs NSW Chairman Peter Newman OAM to indicate your support of the application.
