Eight local organisations including schools, a sport club and Marine Rescue volunteers will receive a share of $192,041 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 make a real difference to the wider community.
“Holgate Public School is receiving $41,378 to install shade sails that cover the school playground and outdoor stage area so that kids are protected from the sun,” Mr Crouch said.
“Terrigal High School will receive $41,000 for outdoor fitness and team building activity stations, which I know will be highly utilised by the very active school community of students and teachers.
“At Terrigal Public School, the current worn and unsafe section of oval will be renewed with $29,000 for natural and artificial turf.
“Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Parish is located at Serpentine Road, Terrigal and is set to benefit from a $25,000 kitchen upgrade to serve meals to needy and elderly residents in our community.
“The foyer at Central Coast Basketball Stadium will be repaired and refurbished thanks to $20,000 for ceiling tiles, light fittings and a new wall.
“The fantastic team at North Avoca Surf Life Saving Club is receiving $15,500 for a number of OH&S repairs that will benefit Club members as well as the wider community who regularly use the facilities.
“A new suite of Raymarine electronic and navigational systems will be installed in Marine Rescue Central Coast’s two newest rescue vessels, CC30 and CC21, thanks to $10,163 in funding.
“At Aspect Central Coast School, $10,000 will go towards the installation of a PA system that alerts students and teachers to transition times and emergency evacuations.
“Each of these projects will absolutely benefit the wider community and I am proud to have supported these applications for funding from the NSW Government.”
