The Member for Cootamundra has announced NSW Government funding to help finalise renovations at the Grenfell Picnic Race Club.

Steph Cooke awarded $9,621 from the Community Building Partnership program to upgrade electrical wiring in the recently renovated kitchen, which was previously supported through a $48,077 grant.

Ms Cooke said the additional assistance would finalise the impressive upgrades.

“I have spent a fair bit of time in club kitchens around the electorate and these renovations are incredible, the space has been transformed in to a practical kitchen that’s light and airy, and will be a better place for volunteers to spend their time,” Ms Cooke said.

“So much has been achieved here and it’s a pleasure to be able to announce this additional support to get these renovations over the line. Well done to the club, contractors and everyone who has been part of these upgrades.”

Grenfell Picnic Race Club President Daniel Kotel said he was pleased to have received the Community Building Partnership grant.

“We are delighted to have received this funding and we are very grateful. Without the grant money we may not have been able to complete the project to the same standard as we have now,” Mr Kotel said.

“This means we don’t have to go to the community to fundraise and we can comfortably ask people to volunteer in the canteen knowing they will be in a clean and comfortable work space.”
