THE village of Neville in the Blayney Shire continues to receive backing from the Member for Bathurst Paul Toole.

Today Mr Toole announced a NSW Government grant of $250,000 for the construction of multi-purpose sports courts on a vacant block of land next to the local War Memorial Park.

This follows recent upgrades at Neville including a new amenities block ($50,000), funding for the establishment of a facility at the local showground to cater for a multitude of equine disciplines ($30,000) and electrical system upgrades at the showground ($20,000). 

Mr Toole said the news of the multi-purpose courts will be welcomed by both the area’s youth and community at large.

“The courts will be constructed by Blayney Shire Council and surfaced with a user-friendly rebound material,” he said.

“Included I the project is line marking for both tennis and basketball, with the aim of to have a travelling tennis coach hold clinics at the new facility.

“The courts will add to the current playground and showground facilities and fill a gap in activities for the village’s youth.”
