Levee delays light upgrade for Gympie Touch Association

AFTER receiving a $100,000 grant from the Queensland Government to improve lighting at Albert Park, The Gympie Touch Association is unsure when the lighting upgrade will occur due to the proposed flood levee.

Gympie Touch Football secretary Debbie Cross said the club would work closely with Gympie Regional Council on the upgrade because the club may need to move should the levee goes ahead.

"At the moment we don't know when we will be upgrading our lights because of the levee," she said.

"We will be working with the council to make sure everything is done right." Fields one and two at Albert Park are scheduled to be upgraded, with Cross saying the new lights will be a massive benefit to the club.

"The new lights will bring us up to state level, which means we can start applying to hold bigger competitions," she said.

Cross said that although there hasn't been a decision on when the upgrade will happen, the club was grateful of the grant.
