Work to upgrade the Stoney Creek Community Hall/RFS fire station at Carwoola will start soon courtesy of a NSW Government Community Building Partnership (CBP) grant.
The Member for Monaro John Barilaro said the Carwoola Community Association will use a $10,700 grant to construct a new veranda.
“The new veranda is necessary to meet the building standards now required for an RFS station,” said Mr Barilaro.
“This work will also greatly improve the amenity of the adjoining community hall making sure that facilities are up to scratch to continue the fantastic work these two groups do in our community.”
Mr Barilaro said the NSW Government’s CBP Program offers grant funding for infrastructure based projects that meet a need in the local community.
"The CBP program supports the building, refurbishment or enhancement of community infrastructure facilities that deliver positive social, recreational and environmental outcomes for the community,” said Mr Barilaro.
“CBP has funded hundreds of community projects throughout the Monaro since its inception.
“This Government acknowledges the valuable work that the RFS and the Carwoola Community Association perform within the local community and I’m pleased that the NSW Government saw fit to financially support this important community project.”
