New Pavilion Progress & Foundation Members

Update on Build Progress

The clubrooms have been demolished and earthworks have been completed on site and now the builders will be preparing the site for the first 20 modules (the ground floor) to be delivered in December. The first floor will be installed in February with completion targeted for mid to late March.

The budget of the build is $4m with the Federal Government funding $500,000 and Maroondah Council contributing $3.5m.

The Football Netball & Cricket Clubs must fund the fit out of the pavilion and we have set a budget of $200,000 to fund the fit out.

First floor kitchen - $45,000

Ground floor canteen - $27,000

Bar - $20,000

Coolroom - $25,000

Furniture - $25,000

AV, TV’s, sound system - $20,000

Misc & variations - $35,000

Our fundraising kicked off at the start of the year and is climbing, but we are now appealing to everyone that has been associated with the Club to contribute to the fund. As the completion date of the build is getting closer, we must have money to buy items or to put up deposits.
