In a formal announcement to club members at the Grand Final celebrations, Graham Watt MP announced that, if re-elected in November, the Napthine Government will contribute $1.5 million dollars towards Waverley Hockey Club’s second ground.
Graham Watt, the State Member of Parliament for Burwood, was supported by the State Member of Parliament for Waverley, Michael Gidley. Club members were pleased with the announcement but, in the words of Club President Drew Ashton, “…it’s not a done deal yet.” The offer hinges on the November State Election result and the State Opposition has not committed to matching the offer.
This announcement has been followed up with media releases via the Leader Newspaper and Graham Watt’s website. For more information about the offer, please read the official information, accessed via the links below.
The club also extends a ‘big thank-you’ to all members and supporters that attended the media launch last Monday, including but not limited to the juniors in the photo above.
