Federal funding for Hector Arena

The Hector Arena in Pictou has received more than $30,000 for much-needed upgrades.

Central Nova MP Sean Fraser was in Pictou on Friday to see the enhancements and announce the funding through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.

The funding helped support a new scoreboard, upgrades to the arena's plumbing system, and a fresh coat of paint to the roof support system to prevent corrosion.

The Hector Arena first opened its doors to the public in 1972.
