The Corny Point Cricket Club and the Ardrossan Bowling Club will be able to improve their facilities with funding through the Stronger Communities Program.
Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey said he is very pleased the funding will enable these important country clubs to make improvements and benefit members.
The Corny Point Cricket Club will receive funding of $5,660 to erect a double lane cricket practice net facility.
“In an area like Corny Point many locals work in isolation on farms or in the fishing industry,” Mr Ramsey said. “This is why sporting clubs are such an important part of our small local communities as they provide support and friendship through the team environment.”
“Practice nights are an opportunity for team mates to get together with families for a barbecue and now they will be able to get some solid practice in as well. I understand the club has never had practice facilities and there has been a renewed interest in the club with the news of the facility.”
“And I am also really pleased to announce Ardrossan Bowling Club will receive $3,840 to purchase and install six shade umbrellas which will be a huge asset in summer.”
“With summer upon us keeping players and spectators cool is important,” he said.
“I am very pleased we have made these Federal Government funds available through the Stronger Communities Program to help regional communities.”
The Coalition Government’s Stronger Communities Programme offers grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 for small capital projects.
