Upgrading the sports ground in Hankey.

The facility could host various sports activities such as soccer, netball, basketball, and tennis. However, due to vandalism, all sports activities were stopped indefinitely. Damage included broken boundary walls and fencing, changing rooms in disrepair, and no electrical wiring.

Community members made many numerous appeals and requests to the local municipality and local government for help to restore the facilities, with no success. The Trust heard the request at the community consultation forum meeting in 2023 and has committed its support for the development of the sports grounds.

The intention is to plant new grass for the soccer field and to secure the facility with a boundary wall as a start. To achieve adequate ownership of the restored facilities by the community, the Trusts hopes that local businesses and community members will be employed to revamp and maintain the facility.
