CONSTRUCTION for the Vibert Reserve Pavillion redevelopment has gotten underway.
Stage 3 works, totalling more than $3.7M, are being delivered by local company, Crow Constructions Pty Ltd.
The expansion is expected to take 11 months to complete. During this time the playground and parking amenities at the reserve will be closed to the public. However, the sports fields on-site will remain open as usual for training and sports matches.
Upgrades to the area will include expansion of the pavilion, and improvements to the carpark and landscaping. Once completed, the pavilion will feature kitchen and social room facilities that will enable space to cater for functions and meetings.
Federal Member for Nicholls, Damien Drum, said that, “Several local groups and organisations will significantly benefit from this upgrade and I’m proud that the Federal Government is providing $1.9M towards the project.”
The pavilion is earmarked to become the new home of the Shepparton South Community Centre. President, Mheg Lumsden said,
“We have been at our Service Street location for 35 years and it is no longer fit for purpose.”
Mayor, Kim O’Keefe said, “The community centre will benefit from a purpose-built space with adequate on-site parking, which will improve access to the service.” from a purpose-built space with adequate on-site parking, which will improve access to the service.”
