Official opening on Tuesday

The newly built and updated Lawson Oval amenities and gym equipment were officially opened on Tuesday morning.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke and Weddin Shire Council Mayor Mark Liebich were joined by Weddin Council General Manager Glenn Carroll, councillors and other members of the community to officially open the latest edition to the town.

It was less than 12 months ago the first sod was turned by Ms Cooke with the building built very quickly after. The grounds would have been opened even sooner, however the COVID-19 pandemic slowed it down.

The Grenfell Goannas haven't had the chance to utilise the facilities due to the Woodbridge Cup season cancelling.

Be sure to check out Friday's Grenfell Record for the full story and photos.
