Scammell Reserve Upgrade

News of the Week


Awesome! These kids right here deserve the best. And that’s what we will give them with the $500,000 that has just been provided by the Andrews Government for an upgrade at Scammell Reserve, Oakleigh South – home to the Oakleigh Krushers, the O.Y.C.F.C – Oakleigh Dragons Junior Football Club and Krushers Cricket Club. That means better club rooms, a modern pavilion and best of all – change rooms for girls and women. These clubs are not just a community – they are a family.
In partnership with Monash City Council this will be a total $2.3 million upgrade. I’m absolutely thrilled that our Government is supporting this plan. It’s a project I worked on while at Monash, followed by Stefanie Perri – Labor Candidate for Chisholm who secured major extra funds from Council. Huge credit goes to the clubs, the committees, the parents and the kids who volunteer countless hours week in week out, and have advocated passionately for this project.
The assistance of Clare O’Neil MP, John Eren MP and Hong Lim MP, Labor for Clarinda has been fantastic. And a massive thank you to Tim Pallas and Ann Barker for your work on this – you are both worth your weight in gold.
