Local Keperra sporting field #3 on Hanran St, operated by West Arana Hills Rugby League Football Club (WAHRLFC), recently received a major upgrade with the installation of 4 new lighting poles, costing over $90,000.
This upgrade was made possible through a Community Grant for $35,000 with the $55,000 balance being funded by Arana Leagues Club.
The previous lights on the field did not provide adequate lighting meaning that teams had to limit their training or move to the Football Club primary field or field #2 which created congestion with multiple teams training and playing.
These new lights will allow more local sporting teams to properly make use of the field. Currently, the field is used by WAHRLFC, the Arana Touch Football Club and the Waratahs Softball Club. The Football Club and Waratahs Softball Club use the field for their training, and the Touch Football Club use the field for their training and playing during the season.
‘We’re very pleased to be able to assist these local sporting teams.’ noted Arana Leagues Club General Manager, Joe Kelly. ‘Our Community Contribution Fund has donated over $6.3 million into the local community since 2003 and is dedicated to assisting local sporting, charitable and community associations as well as local primary schools.’
