Hope for OH Reid?

BackflipAThere are now only two main sports grounds in Willoughby without spotlights – OH Reid Oval and Bales Park. Council recently published their intention to install lights at both. First off the rank was Bales Park. The residents objected and Council did a backflip.

What are the implications for OH Reid?

With Bales Park off the agenda, now only OH Reid remains to allow Council to provide more playing time for sporting clubs. So expect a proposal to install lights (and maybe synthetic turf).

In the 1990s, Council tried to install lights at OH Reid. This move was defeated by resident action. Read how residents stopped the lights in the 90s.

The local community will need to reassemble to fight the next Council onslaught.
