WORK to build new changerooms at Queanbeyan’s Freebody Oval has started.
The new facility – which includes showers, toilets and changing areas for women – is being funded through an $847,000 grant from the NSW government.
Member for Monaro Nichole Overall says the project will go a long way in providing greater opportunities for women and girls to participate in sport.
“This project will deliver fit-for-purpose facilities which is critical to increasing participation of under-represented groups including women and girls and people with disability,” Ms Overall said.
“Improving sports facilities and enabling more people to participate in sport and active recreation is vital to improving the health and wellbeing right across the Monaro.”
