Past players unite for balcony project

BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE: Wangaratta Rovers past players Andrew Scott and Barrie Henderson pore over plans for a roof on the Hawks’ clubroom balcony with Glenn Nicoll from Nicoll Engineering (which will provide steel for the balcony), and Chris McInnes from Wangaratta Bearings and Industrial Supplies (which has made a major commitment to the project).

TO paraphrase some well-worn footy parlance, Wangaratta Rovers Football Netball Club is ‘putting a roof on it’.

With the help of a key sponsor, the club is working on construction of a roof over its clubroom balcony, to ensure maximum use of the facility.

And they are seeking help from other sponsors and supporters to raise the $10,000 needed to complete the project.

Mark Booth, a member of the club’s past players, officials and supporters association (PPOSA), said the concept grew from an offer made late last year by sponsor Wangaratta Bearings and Industrial Supplies.

“They agreed to donate the materials to build the balcony if we could construct and erect it,” Mr Booth said.

“The past players agreed to raise $10,000 to carry out the work.”

Anyone able to help the Hawks raise their roof is encouraged to contact Mark Booth on 0409 171945 or Andrew Scott on 0428 500191.
