AFTER being kept in the dark since termites brought down the old lighting poles in March, CF White Oval will be illuminated again.

Last week it was announced the Southern Downs Regional Council would receive a $150,000 grant from the Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program to erect new lights at the facility.

Stanthorpe Sports Association president John Hendry said shedding light on the oval would increase how much the community would be able to use the facility.

"On behalf of the Stanthorpe Sports Association and its members we wish to thank the Newman LNP Government, Minister for Local Government David Crisafulli and Lawrence Springborg, our local state government member, for this generous contribution towards this very important sporting project at CF White Oval in Stanthorpe," he said

"This funding together with the $70,000 in cash already committed by Stanthorpe & District Cricket Association Inc and Football Stanthorpe Inc will assist the Stanthorpe Sports Association and the Southern Downs Regional Council to construct the new field lighting.

"The local sporting community will be able to make better use of this wonderful community owned asset now we can use it in the evenings."

Mr Hendry said lighting would provide the finishing touch to the CF White extension recently completed by the council, Stanthorpe Sports Association, Stanthorpe Cricket and Football Stanthorpe.

"CF White Oval will soon be the envy of other regional grounds and will be provide a magnificent sporting venue for our community to enjoy for many decades to come," he said.

"It is great to see a wonderful outcome and local sporting clubs will soon be able to recommence training, playing night games and attract other sporting groups as well as extend their own seasons."
