Refurbishment works totalling $170,000 have been completed at the Baston Pavilion, located at Carnarvon Festival Grounds in East Carnarvon prior to the commencement of the junior soccer season which has kicked off pre-season training.

Completed by local contractors, extensive refurbishment works included resurfaced floors in the kitchen and function room, additional and upgraded lighting fixtures, replacement of toilets, refurbishment of changerooms, external wall sheeting, security screen replacements, replacement service counter between the kitchen and verandah, refurbished ceilings in function room and kitchen and the upgrade of internal fittings and fixtures. The refurbishment project was funded by the federal Local Roads and Community Infrastructure programme, with a co-contribution from the Shire.

Already utilising the improved space during preseason preparations, Carnarvon Junior Soccer Association President Brenden Law-Davis says “The CJSA will definitely benefit from the many improvements. It is now a space which is cleaner, safer and place we are proud to call our Club’s home. We are now looking forward to the 2023 season and utilising the venue to its full potential. Thank you to the Shire of Carnarvon and our local tradies for the fantastic upgrade.”
