New Moree BMX ammenities block kick-started with $2000 BMX grant
MOREE Plains Shire Council is supporting the Moree BMX Club with $2000 through council’s public donations financial assistance program to help the Club build a canteen and toilet facilities at its Endeavour Lane track.
BMX club secretary Stefanie Campbell explained once the building has been completed it will enable the club to host regional and State competitions.
“We have been fundraising for a while so that we can provide appropriate infrastructure to cater for our own riders and be able to bring competitors to Moree,” Ms Campbell said.
“Moree has embraced BMX since it has become a popular Olympic sport, and we cater for every skill level, from young children to adults to beginners and professional riders.
“We are very thankful for the financial support we have received not only from Council, but also Regional Australia Bank (formally New England Credit Union) and members of the public through raffles and donations,” she said.
Having these basic facilities will enable the club to hold events for the local members and community as well as inter-club meets and state titles.
These events will encourage tourism to the town as well as giving the youth of our community a positive outlet for their energy.
BMX is a sport where full family participation can take place with riders welcome from ages three to 73 and beyond.
Moree BMX runs every second Friday at the track behind Moree Primary School (adjacent to the tennis courts) at the end of Endeavour Lane.
