Kingslea Broadmeadows and the Northern Blues Football Club visit local schools

Kingslea Broadmeadows and the Northern Blues Football Club have teamed up for a special visit to Broadmeadows Primary School.

Carlton AFL-listed rookies Matthew Owies and Matthew Cottrell and AFLW youngsters Abbie McKay and Emerson Woods hosted a football clinic for the grade three and four students, helping the group build their skills in goal kicking, handballing and mark-taking.

There were plenty of smiles on the day, as the students enjoyed a full day of fun before being able to ask the players questions, snap a photo and grab an autograph.

Kingslea is the brand-new residential community being built on the old Hard Yakka site, directly across the road from the Broadmeadows Primary School.

Upon completion, Kingslea will be home to around 250 new residents who have taken advantage of townhouse and apartment living options. New residents will also have access to an exciting new retail shopping precinct, planned for the Blair Street frontage.

Kingslea’s Sales Director Vanessa Lawless was thrilled to help organise the Northern Blues’ visit to the school, believing it perfectly showcased how the partnership between Kingslea and the Northern Blues could help the local community.

“We are so excited to be the major sponsor of the Northern Blues Football Club this year,” Lawless said.

“Creating a connection to the primary school where the kids can meet the players and enjoy the footy clinic has been great.

“We’re not just building townhouses and apartments at Kingslea, but we’re building a community in Broadmeadows and part of that community is encouraging kids into sports like football.

“The Northern Blues community has really embraced Kingslea and we look forward to continuing our support.”

Broadmeadows is set to become a highly sought-after location for new home buyers, with much to offer.

Located at the gateway to Melbourne’s northern corridor, Broadmeadows is only 17 kilometres and a 30-minute train ride from Melbourne’s CBD, eight kilometres from the Melbourne International Airport and Essendon Airport and also adjacent to the M80 freeway and regional rail networks.

Residents of Kingslea will also be able to enjoy the many local retail offerings, including Broadmeadows Central Shopping Centre, cafes, restaurants, movies, parks and more. The planned Blair Street Central will also add even more retail offerings to meet daily needs.

Kingslea will meet the educational needs of its residents.  Broadmeadows Primary School and Hume Secondary College are both within a stone’s throw, and Melbourne Polytechnic and the Kangan Institute are both nearby. Living at Kingslea also offers easy access to Melbourne University, RMIT and La Trobe University in Bundoora.
