October 13th, 2021New sporting facilities
THE Hepburn Burras Football and Netball Club and Hepburn Cricket Club now have more room to grow, with the completion of a new, female-friendly pavilion at the Laurie Sullivan Reserve.
Macedon MP Mary Anne-Thomas joined members of the Burras to officially open the new pavilion, made possible by a $100,000 boost from the Victorian Government’s Country Football and Netball Program.
Membership at both the Hepburn Football and Netball Club and Hepburn Cricket Club has grown to almost 300 in recent years, however, the previous facilities failed to meet modern standards and expectations.
The new pavilion modernises the club’s facilities and includes female-friendly change rooms, umpire facilities, accessible toilets, storage and a community space. The extra space will allow more players and community members to play, train, compete, develop and celebrate.
