New shading for the Bathurst Croquet Club
The Bathurst Croquet Club is basking in the shade following the installation of much needed awnings thanks to a Community Building Partnership (CBP) grant of $16, 390.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said, “The club was successful in their application to the CBP and have been able to install a retractable outdoor awning which will provide players, spectators, officials and guests with a greater level of comfort and protection from the elements.
“The Croquet Club is one of the most popular sporting facilities in Bathurst and it’s great to see this funding support a much needed and important enhancement to the clubhouse. The facility hosts a number of competitions throughout the year and the awnings are a very welcome addition.
“The CBP is a great program designed to assist community groups and councils pursue initiatives which enhance their organisations and local infrastructure in a partnership with the NSW Government.
“There were 29 projects assisted right across the Bathurst Electorate through the latest round of CBP and funding of $300,000 was delivered in support of a variety of projects,” said Mr Toole.

Successful applications for the 2017 program will be announced later this year.
