The Brimbank Bucks Rugby Union Club is set to enjoy a new $1.4 million sports pavilion upgrade at the Arthur Beachley Reserve, at Ardoyne Street, Sunshine West.

Mayor of Brimbank, Cr Margaret Giudice said the new pavilion replaces the existing facility that no longer meets growing community needs.
