“Wagga Wagga is about to spend many millions of dollars on netball facilities as well as exhibition, conference and entertainment facilities.

“Tamworth has a number of excellent facilities and this is part of a fact finding mission to not only check out those facilities but to investigate how those facilities are managed.

“This is an extremely busy time for Tamworth and all their facilities are being used to maximum advantage.

“It is entirely appropriate that Mr Eldridge sees first-hand how those facilities operate,” Cr Conkey said.
