Football South Australia has finalised a key collaboration with Fennell Forestry, with the local business funding to assist the upcoming stars in the Limestone Coast region.
Delivering high-quality services to industry-leading softwood growers in Australia’s premier Green Triangle timber-producing region, operating between Mount Gambier and Perth, the haulage and harvest company has supported Football South Australia’s (FSA) long-term priority to enhance the game in the Limestone Coast.
FSA announced over a month ago it will employ full-time staff and commence an occupancy at Mount Gambier’s new Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre.
The harvesting operations are organised by a team of highly-skilled operators in state-of-the-art harvesting, forwarding and loading equipment.
In relation to ongoing safety and efficiency, every truck is checked over on a fortnightly basis in a modern and fully furnished, by a team skilled in the know-how which includes two managers, three certified diesel mechanics as well as three apprentices.
FSA Chief Executive Michael Carter said via press release:
“The first is establishing the Fennell Forestry Scholarship Fund to support young players wishing them to participate in the local competition, the second is a supporting partnership with the development centre for talented young boys and girls within the Limestone Coast region, demand for participation in the game has never been greater.”
Fennell Forestry Managing Director Wendy Fennell added via press release:
“Our kids are at a distinct disadvantage due to the fact that they live in a regional area, it’s no secret the Limestone Coast is a great place to live, raise a family and do business – that’s why I am so keen to invest in this region and help give our local kids the same opportunities as their city counterparts.”
Fennell Forestry has secured a place as a Green Triangle timber industry leader – past, present and future – due to the expertise of Wendy Fennell knowing the inside and out of the operation and the timber industry.
