Football Association opens office complex

The dream of the Westmoreland Football Association (WFA) to have a state-of-the-art headquarters is now a reality. Last week, the WFA opened its new office complex at its Llandilo property in Savanna-la-Mar.

Reflecting on the journey, from conception to realisation, WFA's president, Everton Tomlinson, said the dream started when Dr Karl Blythe, former member of parliament for Central Westmoreland, gave them a wooden two bedroom house to retrofit as an office.

"The wider dream is to create a true sports complex in the heart of Savanna-la-Mar, and today, as you can see, we are well on the way," said an elated Tomlinson. "The opening of this complex is an indication that the journey has truly began."

In showing the same level of generosity to the WFA, Tyre Warehouse contributed significantly to the construction of the building, which now provides office space to host both the Westmoreland Sports Council and the Westmoreland Netball Association.

The new facility adjoins the Llandilo playing field and features a multipurpose court, which will host top-flight netball, among other sporting events.
