New Roma touch field taking shape

Councillor Peter Flynn, Portfolio Chair for Sport and Recreation said the construction of the new field will allow for more games to be played at once.

"It is our hope that the increased number of fields will further grow the sport's participation across the region, as well as seeing an increase in member numbers," Cr Flynn said. 

Councillor David Schefe, Portfolio Chair for Local Business said it is great to see locals taking part to shape the Maranoa region.

"The project so far has used local suppliers, for earthworks, irrigation and the supply of turf," Cr Schefe said.

The final step for the touch fields will be the installation of fixed lighting on two fields, scheduled to be completed in February and March next year.

The Queensland Government provided $100,000 to Maranoa Regional Council for the Roma Touch Fields Project to increase Queenslanders' participation in sport and recreation activities.

Further contributions have been made by Maranoa Regional Council and the Roma Touch Association.
