Six organisations including schools, community groups and Rural Fire Brigades in the Terrigal electorate will receive a share of $105,549 from the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership program.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the funding would deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities.
“The Coast Christian School at Bensville is receiving $30,000 to construct coverings at the ‘kiss and drop zone’ and to replace the playground’s softfall,” Mr Crouch said.
“Empire Bay Public School will benefit from a $20,000 tiered outdoor seating platform which also includes outdoor bean bags and a mobile Library box. I want to thank the P&C President Belinda Koukas for submitting this fantastic project.
“Brisbania Public School will be able to better communicate and engage with families and the community thanks to $17,860 for a brand new electronic sign, to be installed on the corner of High Street and Davistown Road.
“At Green Point Community Centre, $15,000 will go towards upgrading the existing disability-accessible bathroom and adding an accessible shower.
“Copacabana Rural Fire Brigade requested $12,599 for new carpet and epoxy flooring and I am delighted to be providing this funding.
“At Avoca Rural Fire Brigade, a grant of $10,000 will allow for the installation of a new electronic sign. This is the least we can do to support our firies following last summer’s harrowing bushfires that stretched from one end of NSW to the other, and also impacted some communities on the Central Coast.
“I want to congratulate each organisation that has received funding from the NSW Government and I know these projects will make a real difference to the wider community.”
