Terrigal Wamberal Rugby League Club and Hardys Bay Community Church will benefit from Round 3 of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the funding would benefit clubs and organisations, as well as the wider Central Coast community.
“The Terrigal Wamberal Rugby League Club is based at Brendan Franklin Oval and has been a launching pad for many NRL players over the past few years,” Mr Crouch said.
“I am delighted to announce the Club will receive $250,000 from the NSW Liberal Government to install footpaths, a spectator bench, shade areas and sandstone blocks.
“At Hardys Bay Community Church the 100-year-old gabled metal roof will be replaced and re-sheeted thanks to $51,443 in new funding.
“In addition to providing a meeting space for the church community, this facility is used all week round for school dance classes, exercise classes, playgroups, fundraisers and social functions.”
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro said $100 million was being distributed across regional NSW, with regional communities set to benefit from more than 550 new projects.
To date, Rounds 1 and 2 of the program have funded more than 1,000 projects.
“Locals across regional NSW are seeing the benefits of rounds one and two of the Fund, with projects making a big difference to everyday life, from new playgrounds loved by kids to light towers illuminating sporting fields,” Mr Barilaro said.
“We are funding grassroots projects that make a real difference to each community, and we know how important it is to support our regional towns with new infrastructure and programs.”
The $400 million Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $1.7 billion Regional Growth Fund, which is being invested in local programs and infrastructure that improve the lives of people living in regional NSW.
