Ben mcneil, senior sports and facilities officer

I am the Senior Sports and Facilities Officer at the Town of Port Hedland.

Sport has a huge part to play bringing people together and promoting active lifestyles in regional centres like ours.  Every day I have the pleasure of collaborating with the fantastic club committee members and volunteers who give up their time to make sport happen here in Port Hedland.  Behind the scenes, I manage exciting new facility projects and work with professionals like architects and leisure consultants to set the strategic agenda for sport in our town.  

The great Pilbara outdoor lifestyle lends itself well to all kinds of sport activity and it is a pleasure doing business in an area capable of delivering so many great outcomes to our community.  Port Hedland is a vital community hub of the Pilbara with almost 150 years of interesting and at times complicated history.  The challenges are vast, but so too are the rewards.
