New Fence To Protect Croquet Club

New+fencing+funded+by+Bass+Coast+Shire+Council+and+the+Phillip+Island+Croquet+Club+has+been+installed+around+the+playing+area.

A joint project between Bass Coast Shire Council and the Phillip Island Croquet Club has seen a new fence erected at their Blue Gum Reserve facility.

The new fencing, which will provide animal protection from within the playing and club area, has been re-aligned to accommodate the local native vegetation.

Club Vice President, David Mann, is pleased to have the new fence in place and is hopeful of further club facility development.

“The new fence is terrific. We have worked well together with Council and the Friends of Blue Gum Reserve to ensure the beautiful outlook of this reserve is kept and improved,” Mr Mann said.

“We are now in the process of planning for a small extension to the clubhouse to cater for our growing members.”

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Kimberley Brown, sees this as another positive in the connection between Council and community organisations.

“A plan was in place within the Club’s licence agreement to identify this project as a partnership between Council and the Club,” Cr Brown said.

“We are pleased that this has now been achieved and look forward to working with Phillip Island Croquet Club on their future aspirations.”

The fence project was completed using local contractors and within a recreational budget from Council and equal contribution from the Phillip Island Croquet Club.
