For most of last week, the Tooheys New Crew worked with the local community to finish off the new Tweed Heads Seagulls’ community clubhouse, for Australia’s oldest registered provincial club. During the week the Crew was joined by Origin Legends David Peachey and Bryan Fletcher and Titans Players Luke Bailey, Kevin Gordon, Luke Douglas and Albert Kelly.
Prior to the Seagulls’ first grade match against the north’s Devils on Sunday, Paul ‘The Chief’ Harragon and the Crew handed back the new clubhouse to the Tweed Heads Seagulls Rugby League club, led by CEO Terry Keen during an official handover ceremony.
Harragon thanked volunteers for giving up their time and local businesses for getting behind the club and donating supplies. He also acknowledged the support shown by the state government, local council and NRL.
‘The Tooheys New Crew is all about working with local communities across NSW’, he said. ‘It’s great to see the state government, local council and NRL support this project and work with the Tooheys New Crew to bring the community this essential sporting venue.’
State member for Tweed Geoff Provost, Tweed Shire Council mayor Barry Longland and Terry Keen accepted a plaque on behalf of the local community to acknowledge the completed renovations.
‘The build couldn’t have happened if it weren’t for the continued support of the Tooheys New Crew,’ said Mr Keen. ‘It’s incredible to think we now have our very own clubhouse, a place to call home.’
Players, members and guests can now enjoy a brand-new clubhouse including a bar area with inside and outside service, modern canteen, beer garden and undercover areas so supporters can enjoy all-weather spectating.
