THE successful community groups that will receive an early Christmas present thanks to much-needed State Government funding grants have been announced.
The grants will help local community groups to deliver important projects to enhance their facilities, including fence replacements, accessible accommodation and drainage upgrades.
State MP for Keira, Ryan Park said $400,000 in grants for local groups across the Keira electorate have been approved.
“This is a great win for our local groups and will provide them with some funding relief after a tough few years,” Mr Park said.
“Projects like fencing at Bellambi Football Club along with security cameras for Thirroul Football Club are very important for these grassroots community sporting clubs.
“I am also pleased to be able to provide funding for local schools including, Coledale Public School, Russell Vale Public School, Tarrawanna Public School, Balgownie Public School and Aspect Corrimal,” he said.
Russell Vale Junior Soccer Club will also receive $35,00 for drainage work to playing fields on Cawley Park.
Mr Park said he hoped that these projects will help to make a real difference for all community members.
“As the local MP I know how vital these funds are for these local groups and I am pleased to have been able to give them an early Christmas present,” Mr Park said.
