Berowra's New Cricket Pitch Officially Opened
Posted: Wednesday 15 March, 2017
On Friday Hornsby Shire Mayor Steve Russell was on hand to keep the wicket at the official opening of Berowra’s new cricket pitch at Warrina Street Oval.
He was joined by members of Berowra Cricket Club, representatives of Cricket New South Wales, Hornsby MP Matt Kean and a gang of excited young cricketers who were eager to play T20.
“This is a much-needed upgrade to an already great facility and is an example of Hornsby Shire Council’s commitment to sport,” Mayor Russell said.
“The new synthetic pitch will make playing cricket here an even better experience than it already was.”
The upgraded pitch at Berowra is part of $300,000 Council is currently spending on cricket facilities across the Shire, including new synthetic wickets at Normanhurst Oval, both Foxglove ovals, Mt Kuring-gai Oval and Cheltenham Oval.
A new picket fence and new sight screens are also being installed at Hornsby’s Mark Taylor Oval.
“In regard to Berowra’s Warrina Street Oval, I would like to thank Cricket New South Wales for the funds they contributed to the project,” Mayor Russell said.
“Their assistance has helped Council achieve this project sooner than we would have and is a sign of the cooperation that exists between us and the various sporting groups in the Shire.”
