Shoalhaven City Council is delivering on its commitment to provide improvements to Sanctuary Point Oval for the upcoming athletics season.

The oval’s $326,000 irrigation and drainage project is nearly complete, with irrigation work finished and drainage works set to be completed by next week.  

Councillors Bob Proudfoot, Mark Kitchener, Patricia White, John Wells, and Joanna Gash met with the St Georges Basin Little Athletics Centre President, Tracy Mandavy recently to discuss ongoing support of the oval. 

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley is excited about how the oval is shaping up: “We’re really looking forward to working closely with St Georges Basin Little Athletics Centre to have the oval ready for next season.” 

“Beyond the irrigation and drainage works, we plan to assist with new line markings, and over the next year we’ll be working to improve the soil and address weed issues so that Sanctuary Point Oval is a great resource for our little champions-to-be and the whole community,” Clr Findley said. 

The irrigation and drainage works were funded by a grant from the NSW Government.
