Kettering Community Association(Inc) president Picton Hay, together with local Kettering Walkers organiser, Elspeth Haughie and husband Ray were on hand at a presentation night held at Kingborough Council on 6 July to accept a $5,000 grant. The grant will be used to acquire materials to upgrade and extend the Kettering Oval Track.

Planning for the upgrades will commence shortly and work is expected to begin in spring.  Elspeth reports that she has been discussing with  Lions Club of Kingborough how they might be able to assist with the construction.  KCA will also be calling for local volunteers to help with the upgrades.
