The foundation has announced a $400,000 building grant to allow the sports hub to progress next month. The hub, which will include indoor and outdoor facilities, sports courts and bowling greens, is set to be built on the site of the Parklands Bowling Club, and is a joint venture between the bowling club and the Parklands Rugby Football Club, with support from the Ministry of Education. The grant will cover about a quarter of the overall cost, with the rest coming through other grants and donations, the clubs hope. The costs are associated with the relocation, placement, wiring and plumbing of the two buildings. It is expected to cost about $1.5 million in total. Stage one of the process will see the relocation of two buildings from the former Freeville School to the bowling club on Chadbury St. They will act as a club house and sports hall in the facility. A joint project committee GO AHEAD: An estimated $1.5 million will need to be spent on this Parklands community sports hub. But that figure has been made easier with a $400,000 grant from the Rata Foundation. ​ has been created to take care of the sports hub’s progress, and is made up of bowling club and rugby club members. Sports that could be played at the completed facility include bowls, petanque, futsal, basketball, netball and indoor bowls. Parklands Bowling Club vice president Wayne Eden said now that the funding has been granted, the clubs can start to put timelines in place. “We’ve got a bit of funding and stage one is looking likely to go ahead in February or March. We’ve got the consents, now we have to get the foundations down before the first of the buildings arrive,” he said. The bowling club’s greens were badly affected in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The pavilion building was damaged beyond repair. Joint project committee chairman Maurice Lawlor (left) said the project was unique to the area because it was “conceived by the community, for the community, in response to real community needs.” Work on the foundations is set to begin next month, and the two Freeville School buildings will be moved on-site before the end of next month. The clubs are looking for financial support to keep the project on track.
