Work on the new community complex at Apex Reserve has started with half of the concrete slab laid for the facility.
When finished, the building will be the long-awaited home to Cobram Roar and Cobram Junior Soccer Association.
‘‘We have talked about it for years and to finally see it begin is incredible,’’ Roar president Manny Artavilla said.
‘‘You don’t believe it until you see it and now it has started, you have to pinch yourself.
‘‘Half the slab has been laid and the second half will hopefully be laid in the next couple of weeks.’’
