OAKLANDS will officially unveil its new community centre on Saturday.

The $350,000 project will house the town’s sporting clubs, including football, netball, cricket, tennis and little athletics.

The new facility boasts a function room with kitchen, bar and office.

Another $97,000 was spent on multi-purpose netball and tennis courts and $22,000 on a new cricket pitch, nets and lighting for tennis.

The centre will house memorabilia and honour boards from all the sporting clubs as well as the Oaklands truck show.

The existing change-rooms will remain in use.

“The feedback we’ve had has been fantastic,” Billabong Crows president Ted Brooks said.

“It is the culmination of a lot of hard work by the recreation committee with the Urana Shire’s help.

“There is a lot of history and memorabilia, including the 14 football flags.”
