Sports centre wins $500k


A Lottery Community Facilities Fund grant of $500,000 has been secured by the Waimate District Council for the Waimate District Community Complex project.

Work on the $3.8 million upgrade of the Waimate Stadium is scheduled to get under way later this year, most likely in early August.

Waimate Mayor Craig Rowley described the grant as a “fantastic result”, given $20.3 million in total was requested from a funding pool with only $6.3 million available.
