Port Pirie Sports Precinct Purchase A Picket
Buy A Gift That Lasts A Lifetime!
With Christmas just around the corner, Port Pirie Regional Council is offering a unique gift opportunity.
Council is continuing our Purchase-A-Picket campaign which has seen individuals, community groups, sporting clubs and in memoriam tributes featured in plaques on the picket fence at Memorial Oval.
Purchase a picket before Friday 13 December 2019 and you will receive a photo of the plaque design to present to your friend or loved one on Christmas Day. Plaques will be installed early in the New Year.
This opportunity will continue into the New Year with pickets/plaques able to be purchased for birthdays and other special occasions.
Call into the Council Administration Centre at 115 Ellen Street, Port Pirie or call 8633 9777 to find out more about this fantastic opportunity!
What is Purchase-A-Picket?
The pickets at Port Pirie’s new Sports Precinct went on sale on Tuesday 2 October 2018 at the Council Administration office and will be sold on a first in first served basis. Application forms can be obtained from the Council Administration Office or the Council Website.
This initiative is to offer the public an opportunity to “Purchase a Picket” on the purpose built white picket fence that has been put up around Memorial Oval.
Members of the public and sporting clubs will be offered the opportunity to purchase a picket and place their mark on this high class facility. This gives individuals and families an opportunity to be part of Port Pirie’s history, and provides clubs the chance to purchase a picket to acknowledge club legends and club achievements.
With the availability of around 4,000 pickets for sale, the oval will be divided up into sections of gold, silver and bronze with gold being the premium area, silver on the eastern side of the oval and bronze at either end of the oval.
Prices will start at $50 for Bronze, $100 for Silver and $150 for Gold.
Businesses can now purchase a picket in the platinum area (between the coaches boxes) for a one of fee of $250.
The community will reap the rewards of this initiative with the proceeds of this going back in to sport and recreation initiatives.
