Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke has today announced $72,500 funding to improve access to the Narrandera Ex-Servicemen’s Club.

The grant has been secured under Category 3 of the NSW Government’s ClubGrants Fund.

Ms Cooke said the funding will go a long way in ensuring the Club is accessible to all members of the community.

“It’s my privilege to be here today with so many members of the RSL Sub-branch to announce funding which will be used to improve the accessibility of Narrandera Ex-Servicemen’s Club,” Ms Cooke said.

“A new stair lift will be installed as well as automatic bi-fold doors to help make it easier and safer for people to enter and exit the Club.

“I know how beneficial this will be to the Narrandera community – particularly to those with mobility restrictions or disabilities who use the facilities.”

Narrandera Ex-Servicemen’s Club Secretary Manager Rick Boller said the funding will make a big difference.

“We hold a number of community events here at the Narrandera Ex-Servicemen’s Club so it’s incredibly important our community members can access the venue safely,” Mr Boller said.

“The funding will resolve a number of issues by making it easier for people to come in, particularly our more elderly customers.

“On top of this, we will also be able to employ local trades to complete the electrical work which will provide a welcomed boost to those needing work in the town.”

The project is set to be completed early next year. For more information, visit https://www.responsiblegambling.nsw.gov.au/about-us/funds-we-manage/category-3-fund
