State Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos has welcomed Glen Eira Council’s funding allocation to complete the upgrade of King George Reserve Pavilion in East Bentleigh.

The allocation of $804,000 in Council’s 2017/18 draft budget includes $100,000 from the Andrews Labor Government for much needed female toilets and change room facilities.

King George Reserve is home to Bentleigh Junior Football Club, Bentleigh ANA Cricket Club and East Bentleigh Central Cricket Club. Both Bentleigh AusKick and Bentleigh ANA have girls participating in sport, yet the pavilion does not currently have any female friendly facilities.

In addition to providing female friendly facilities, the plans will now include a greater redevelopment of the pavilion, including an upgrade to the frontage.
