Kindlebark is set to thrive after Medowie Little Athletics was successful in their Hunter Water ‘Love Water’ grant proposal.
The Club is one of nine successful community and civic organisations who will share in the $50,000 of one off grant funding.
Funding of $10,000 will assist the Club to install rainwater tanks to capture water from the clubhouse roof and to install irrigation infrastructure along the track.
The project will see the most used section of the athletics track irrigated with pop up sprinklers, resulting in a healthier playing surface.
President of the Club, Jason Wells told News Of The Area, “The project will see half of our track being irrigated during the driest part of the year – without using a drop of town water.”
“The Club has worked closely with a local irrigation company to design the irrigation and rain harvesting system.”
“Total Eden at Raymond Terrace has designed an efficient system that will help provide a green space for the whole Medowie community.”
“We are proud to implement this project that will promote water conservation and sustainability into the future for the Medowie community.”
Medowie Little Athletics has been established for many years with some centre records dating back 35 years.
The Club meets every Friday evening from 5pm at Kindlebark Oval between September and March.
Athletes are currently preparing for competition in the Zone Championships that will be held at Raymond Terrace on 1-2 December.
