A sporting boost to the Home Hill economy

SPORT provided a major boost to the Home Hill economy at the end of April as visiting cricket and netball teams joined with local participants in two major competitions over the one weekend.

Cricketers competed in the Canefield Ashes at their complex in the centre of the racecourse and at several school grounds, while the netballers were constantly in action at the Burdekin Netball Association facilities in the town.

Accommodation houses were also full, while local businesses were kept busy providing for the needs of the visitors as large numbers of extra vehicles filled the town’s streets.
