Ebor Sportsground upgrades completed

Upgrades to the Ebor Sportsground have been completed thanks to funding from Armidale Regional Council and the generous support of the local community.  

In 2016, the Ebor Community Group was successful in their application to the Stronger Communities Fund – a one off grant allocation given to new councils by the NSW State Government.  

Council Administrator Dr Ian Tiley said that the funding enabled the Ebor community to upgrade facilities at the Sportsground.  

“The Ebor Sportsground and its facilities are in frequent use by the community and visitors and upgrades were needed,” Dr Tiley said.  

A new two booth toilet unit with disabled access is now complete and operational.  

Volunteers from the Ebor Community Group, under the guidance of Bryson Wade, undertook the preparation of the site which included approximately 100 metres of  trenching for electrical and plumbing installations, unloading and siting of the water tank, delivery and positioning of the toilet module followed by the construction roof component and the connection of services and the final clean-up.

“Volunteers devoted over 200 hours of labour and donated their own heavy equipment and small tools to enable the project to be completed,” Dr Tiley said.

The project was also assisted by Mr Alan Miller and other members of the Ebor Sportsground Trust Committee who allowed the toilet unit to be connected into their existing septic and absorption trench system, and allowed rain water to be captured and diverted from a portion of the existing building to the new facility’s rain water tank.
