SOUTH Mornington footballers have a new home with the official opening of the pavilion at Mt Martha’s Citation Recreation Reserve.

The single level pavilion was opened on Sunday 28 April by the mayor Cr David Gill and Crs Bev Colomb and Rosie Clark.

It will be used by both junior and senior players.

The building was designed to meet the needs of local sporting and community groups with its social room, multi-purpose change rooms, unisex toilets and showers, office space and store rooms, kitchen/kiosk, first-aid room, accessible toilets and external public toilets.

The building has low-energy lighting, heating and cooling tailored to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and water efficient fittings and fixtures.

Cr Gill said the pavilion was a “great space for the sporting community of Mt Martha and I’m sure our local clubs will be proud to call it home”.

“It was fantastic to officially open the pavilion along with the clubs and join in the buzz of game day.”
