WHEN you're trying to build something that's set to last, every little piece of help is gratefully accepted.
That's why the local baseball association was more than pleased last week to accept a donation from NSW Country Baseball Inc. to help with the development of the new baseball fields at the Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park.
Chairman Warren Williams made a whistlestop visit to town last week to hand over a cheque for $7000 to assist in the development of the new complex.
President of the Coffs Harbour Association David Lee has indicated that the money will be spent on creating back netting behind one of the diamonds as well as building two dugouts.
When it comes to the new baseball venue in town, Lee says that Coffs Harbour's baseballers can't wait to move into their new home.
"Everyone's really looking forward to it, they're keen as mustard," he said.
"Currently we have a number of different venues around town but with this facility we can bring everyone together."
