Toilets on the way for Mareeba cricket

PATRONS and players spending their weekends watching cricket at Mareeba’s Borzi Park will now be able to have access to their own set of demountable toilets after Mareeba Shire Council approved a loan to install sewerage to the new facility.


For years the cricket clubs’ players, visitors and officials have all been forced to use the band hall toilets and now soon they will have access to their own set of demountable toilets. 

The cricket club had been fundraising for weeks to try and raise some money as they pushed the council for assistance through a loan. 

Just last week their loan was approved to install sewerage, cutting across the field from Chewko Road to the proposed site of the toilets. 

Their fundraising efforts didn’t go unnoticed however with Councillor Locky Benstead drawing special attention to the club’s work. 

The club will now get to work with sewerage works as they aim to get the toilets installed and ready for use as soon as possible.
