Parking in No 1 Sports Ground costs $4 for cars going to netball. The money is collected at the gate by the Lions Cub and the money is used by charity and volunteer organisations including Lions Club and NNA. The speed limit within No 1 Sports Ground is 10 km/hr. The contribution is NOT voluntary and Newcastle City Council sets the cost and allows the use of No 1 Sports Ground for netball parking.
It has come to our attention that several cars are putting the Lions Club volunteers' safety at risk by speeding through the gate without paying. The money is secondary, the welfare of the volunteers is our main concern. The Lions club have recorded the number plates of the cars causing this dangerous situation, and if there continues to be incidents these number plates will be forwarded to authorities.
Please assist us by reporting any other dangerous situations to NNA at the office.
