The following email was received on 8th October 2020 by John Strachan of the Yarra Ranges Council (RAL – Co-Ordinator Sport)
Hi Paul, Aimee, Grant & Jason
On behalf of Yarra Ranges Council, AFL Victoria and AFL Outer East, It is with great pleasure that I let you know that the Monbulk Community Sports Pavilion has won the 2019 AFL Victoria Best Community Football Facility award.
This project is a remarkable example of best practise that aligns very strongly to Councils and the AFL’s aim of providing well positioned, welcoming, fit for purpose, female friendly football facilities that support our growing game’s strategic priorities.
As the Victorian winner, the Pavilion was automatically nominated for the AFL National Ken Gannon award. Although it didn’t win, it was highly commended. (See Attached.)
Kind Regards John, Amber & Aaron.
