14th of August, 2020.
I hope you’re well.
In times where we are all dealing with relentless changing environments and uncertainties – we wanted to share some genuinely good news… “we are getting a new athletics track“.
The Bayside City Council recently approved and announced the successful community submission to redevelop the track at Glamis Avenue.
The current track was built in 1997 and is a significant asset to the Bayside Community. It is highly utilised by all ages from varying community groups and in great need of an overhaul to continue supporting the health and well-being of its users, as well as benefit our community growth and experience.
We are extremely excited with this announcement and would like to thank the many contributors and supporters from the community as part of the submission process.
In addition, we would also like to acknowledge and thank the team from the Bayside City Council in particularly Mayor Clarke Martin, Deputy Mayor Rob Grinter along with Damien Van Trier – Manager Open Space, Recreation & Wellbeing for their leadership and collaborative support throughout the process.
The project is well underway and construction is hopeful to commence later in the year. As we wait for further clarification regarding the upcoming season in the interim we will continue to operate at Glamis Avenue until construction begins and then we will relocate temporarily to a neighbouring club.
The Club will continue to keep you updated with all developments as information comes to hand via our newsletters.
In the meantime please take care and stay safe!
