The Nationals in Government are continuing to support our local communities, with $330,000 handed out in the Myall Lakes electorate alone.

NSW Nationals Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead said the Community Building Partnerships program delivered much-needed improvements to local facilities, including improving energy efficiency with new solar panels for Forster Arts & Craft Society, funding to treat brick cancer at Black Head SLSC and funding for the refurbishment of Wingham Brush Schools Basketball Court.

A total of 34 community organisations across the electorate benefited from the funding.

“The NSW Nationals’ strong economic management ensures we are in a position to invest in these important local projects across Regional NSW,” Mr Bromhead said. “This is fantastic news, this funding will directly help to create vibrant and inclusive local communities with positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.”

Among those projects given funding were renovations of amenties and buildings, installation of solar panels, and purchasing of equipment.

“I congratulate all the organisations that were successful in their application and look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for groups in Forster, Tuncurry and across the Great Lakes,” Mr Bromhead said.

The Community Building Partnership program has funded some 13,800 community projects across the State since it commenced nearly a decade ago.
