The future of the RF Miles Reserve has been secured today with a commitment of $2.3 million from the Liberal Member for Dunkley, Chris Crewther MP.
The commitment comes on top of the $2.6 million pledged by the Liberal Candidate for Carrum, Donna Bauer, and an earlier contribution of $300,000 from the Federal Liberal Government.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said this commitment comes on the back of months of strong advocacy by the Federal Member for Dunkley.
“Chris has been knocking down my door to support the new multi-purpose pavilion and netball courts at RF Miles Reserve in Seaford.
Like Chris, I know how important local sporting clubs are to communities and families.
This is a great opportunity for Seaford and the netball, football and cricket clubs, and our Government is proud to support the project.”
Federal Member for Dunkley, Chris Crewther MP, said he was delighted that today’s commitment would see the RF Miles Reserve redevelopment become a reality.
“I’m so pleased that we’ve been able to secure the final piece of this puzzle, with Federal funding totalling $2.6 million, adding to the $2.6 million already secured by Donna Bauer.
This funding ensures the delivery of the new multi-purpose sports pavilion and netball courts at RF Miles Reserve, along with the Seaford Football & Netball Club and the Seaford Cricket Club.
This is a great win for local footballers, netballers and cricketers, and the wider Seaford community.
Liberal Candidate for Carrum, Donna Bauer, said the commitment from Chris and the Federal Liberal Governmentmeans that Seaford locals can be confident that an elected Victorian Liberal Government can see this project through.
“I’m so pleased that Chris has secured Federal Liberal Government funding for RF Miles Reserve.
As a member of the Victorian Liberal Team, I fought for and secured $2.6 million for the new multi-purpose pavilion and netball courts.
Chris’s commitment means that the project is now fullyfunded and will start as a priority under an elected Victorian Liberal Government.
It means local residents will finally get the facilities they deserve, after they were booted out by Labor’s
