“These facilities will be able to be used by generations of Cougars to come,” Clr Findley noted. 

“These are important facilities not only provide a safe space for the club to store their training equipment, but club house also provides a safe space for club members to change before and after training and games” Clr Findley said.  

The Club House includes 80m2 of storage and the inclusion of two unisex toilets and an accessible toilet.
