Moreton Bay Regional Council has granted a pair of community leases that is set to help shape the future of the Bribie Island Croquet Club Inc. and the Bribie Island Soccer Football Club Inc.

A spokesperson for Parks, Recreation and Sport Councillor Koliana Winchester who made the announcement following council’s coordination meeting on Tuesday 21 August said council would grant community leases to both clubs to construct a half croquet court and a storage shed at Banksia Beach and Bongaree respectively.

“This is another opportunity to deliver much-needed community space that encourages local residents to stay healthy and active,” Cr Winchester said.

Councillor for Division 1 Brooke Savige said council’s community leasing program offered low-cost opportunities for over 250 community groups across the region to manage and utilise council’s facilities.

“This is a brilliant example of how council continues to support organisations across the Moreton Bay Region and promote a healthy and active lifestyle,” Cr Savige said.

“I’m very happy that council has been able to assist the Bribie Island Croquet Club Inc. and the Bribie Island Soccer Football Club to ensure both clubs continue to play an important part in providing social and sporting opportunities for our community.”

Cr Winchester said both clubs have been established in the community for 76 years collectively providing excellent service for their members and players over the years.

“Membership at Bribie Island Croquet Club Inc. has grown significantly over the years and with over 65 members, it’s fitting that the club has the opportunity to welcome more croquet players with the construction of a half size croquet court to cater for the needs of their club now for years to come.

“For the Bribie Island Soccer Football Club Inc. it will mean that the club can build additional storage space to house club equipment such as portable goals, nets, line marking equipment, paint and balls.”
