Nationals’ Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said more improvements are on their way at Coffs Harbour Showground under Round Five of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Mr Singh congratulates the Coffs Harbour Showground Crown Land Management Board on their $350,000 grant to upgrade their electricity supply.
“This includes the supply and installation of a new transformer and associated works,” Mr Singh said.
“This vital upgrade is required for the re-opening of the upgraded Exhibition Hall and for the supply of power to the new grandstand once it is completed.”
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said in the past five years the Stronger Country Communities Fund had delivered more than 2000 grassroots projects, benefitting every Local Government Area in regional NSW.
“We all know how important it is for communities to have great places to come together to build social connections and boost their wellbeing through sport or community events,” Mr Toole said.
“It’s the little things that make a big difference to the way we all work, live, play and do business, and the NSW Liberals and Nationals in Government are delivering the projects that make a difference to everyday life right across regional NSW.”
Round Five of the Stronger Country Communities Fund will support local community and sporting infrastructure projects, street beautification, public programs and events that display the best of local character and community spirit.
The Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund, designed to support growing regional centres, activate local economies and improve services and community infrastructure in the regions.
