Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke was in Ganmain recently to officially open the new synthetic greens at the Sports Club.
Funded in part by a $350,000 grant under the previous Coalition Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund, Ms Cooke said the new greens have transformed the popular local club, with the event marking a significant milestone for the entire Ganmain community.
“Today’s opening signifies the club’s commitment to promoting an active and vibrant community by providing facilities that both members and visitors to the area can enjoy,” Ms Cooke said.
“These sorts of projects are about more than just infrastructure; it’s about investing in our communities and creating spaces for people to come together, enjoy sports, and build bonds.
“These upgrades will have a lasting impact on Ganmain, and I’m truly thrilled to be part of today’s opening,” she said.
In addition to the new synthetic bowling greens, Ms Cooke said the sports ground has also benefited from $49,585 in funding from the Crown Reserves Improvement Fund, allocated under the previous Coalition Government.
“This investment has enabled critical improvements to the fencing and lighting, ensuring that the grounds remain a safe and welcoming space for members and guests,” Ms Cooke said.
“The revitalisation of the bowling green has breathed new life into the club’s facilities, and together with the new lighting and fencing, is a testament to the commitment and hard work of all those involved in the refurbishment project; a true celebration of what can be achieved when we come together to work towards a common goal as a community,” she said.
