I was delighted to hear that the Morningside Panthers were successful in securing $400,000 in funding from the Queensland State Government, Brisbane City Council and AFL Queensland.
As one of the most successful AFL Clubs in Brisbane, this funding will provide a new state of the art Changing Room for their Club at Jack Esplen Oval.
Mike Mollison, Director of Infrastructure at Morningside Panthers, summed up the feelings of the Morningside Panthers –
‘This is the biggest single investment made in the history of the club and it will be a big win for both the football club and the local community. The existing rooms are woefully outdated and inadequate preventing the club from holding community-based events that can now be planned with confidence.’
He also thanked out terrific State Member for Bulimba, Di Farmer, for her guidance and enthusiasm in backing this project.
Work will now commence to complete the final design and construction will be underway as soon as possible.
