New sport shed comes together
VOLUNTEERS in Monto have been helping out erecting a new shed for the Combined Sports Field.
The shed was provided by the Federal Government, who were reutilising material from a closing army depot by gifting them to regional communities.
The previous North Burnett mayor Don Waugh secured them for Monto and Gayndah, with the latter being used to help construct the Men's Shed.
Monto Sports Association president Donald Hagan said the original plan was for the army to assist with construction, but plans changed and now the group is putting it up with help from the community.
"It's been the perfect amount of attendees every day so far with the jobs we've been tackling,” Hagan said.
"Next we'll be putting the other end wall in and starting on the roofing iron and we need as many people as we possibly can.”
The current plan for the shed is to use it as a catering facility next to the grounds, and later on as a bar once football resumes in Monto.
Weather permitting, the next works will take place this Saturday (7am start).
