Yesterday, a new sponsor was announced for the Sports Park, the Higgins Group Holdings, are to give $500,000 towards the roading on the outside and inside of the Sports Park. Inside the park, the main road at the complex would be called the “Higgins Boulevard”. The Higgins company are to be forming the roads, carparks and netball courts as part of the next stage of the development. As I am a great believer in the urgency and importance of replacing the Hastings Netball courts, this is great news for the netball players of the area ( including my grand daughter Tia, who is developing into a great GK) As a community, we have to be seen to promote physical fitness as a way of life and part of this, is providing the facilities to enjoy working on our fitness. Playing netball is a crucial part of this.
