Yetman boundary fence underway

28 September 2020

A new boundary fence is being installed at Yetman sports ground, with construction of the picket-style white fence due to be completed this week.

The 220 metre fenceline is set to benefit the local cricket club, Little Athletics Club and the school, which utilises the ground for sports events and school carnivals.

Inverell Shire Council mayor Paul Harmon says the fence installation at Terry Barnes Oval is supported by a grant from the New South Wales Government.

“The fence will be a great benefit to the local cricketers and will save them having to chase those boundary shots rolling down the bank towards the river”.

“With the backdrop of Yetman’s colourful public art amenities block, it creates a striking view for visitors entering Yetman from the north”.

“The fence is a recycled plastic material, which will be hard wearing and also require less maintenance”.

The mayor says the new fence marks the start of a trio of projects to be completed in Yetman over the next month.

“We will also be painting the exterior of the Yetman Hall thanks to drought recovery funding and we’re going to see a new piece of public art installed on the side of Yetman Store”.
