URALLA Sporting Complex has had a running start with the official opening of the newly upgraded facility.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall joined Uralla Shire mayor Michael Pearce to open the completed $280,000 complex on Monday.
The upgrade involved the construction of a new canteen, ramp, toilets and parking including disability access.
“We really hope this new area can bring people as far as Armidale to the facility. This should lead to an increase in sporting participation in the Uralla Shire community,” Mr Pearce said.
“This facility has the potential to host major carnivals and championships but more importantly bring a lot people and extra dollars to the community,” Mr Marshall said. “I think this is only the beginning.”
