Work starts on James Browne oval improvements

Work has started on improvements to facilities and the women's change rooms at James Browne Oval in Woy Woy.

The work will be undertaken by Central Coast Council with $488,000 in Federal funding.

Federal Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks said she was happy to see the precinct receive upgrades to its rundown facilities.

She said upgrades would provide an even playing surface to the ovals, which included two full-sized senior pitches and non-competition football fields.

The funding came from the Community Sport Infrastructure program, she said.

It would see upgrades to other areas in the precinct, with additional contributions received from Ettalong Diggers, Southern Ettalong Football Club and Raybal Constructions.

Mrs Wicks said that, along with $120,000 Federal funds to improve irrigation and drainage, the project upgrades would also contribute to improved canteen facilities.

Mrs Wicks said the improved facilities benefited cricket and softball, as well as football, and local schools would be able to host gala days and meetings there.
