Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) have been successful in receiving funding of over $560,000 to upgrade amenities at Fisher Park in Cootamundra and Ellwood’s Hall in Stockinbingal.
These are just two Council led projects as part of six awarded to the Cootamundra-Gundagai area under Round Five of the NSW Governments Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said we have a number of groups who use Fisher Park and Ellwood’s Hall and these improvements will mean modernised amenities for locals and visitors to enjoy.
“Fisher Park sees visitors and participants of the Cootamundra Junior Rugby League, Women’s Tag League, Cootamundra Cycle Club, Cootamundra Cricket as well as a space for the community to enjoy monthly markets,” Ms Cooke said.
“These facilities at the Park will undergo a complete overhaul to rejuvenate and modernise the current over 30-year-old infrastructure.”
“Ellwood’s Hall will see a particular focus on upgrading the previously shared amenities to now include separate women’s facilities including new changerooms and showers.”
Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council Mayor Cr Charlie Sheahan said this funding is wonderful for their communities and Council appreciates the support from the NSW Government.
“Fisher Park is in need of an upgrade and desperately needs appropriate facilities for women’s sports,” Cr Sheahan said.
“Visitors and members of the Stockinbingal community will greatly appreciate the new toilets at Ellwood’s Hall.”
Since 2017, the Stronger Country Communities Fund has invested over $8.7 million for 48 projects across Cootamundra-Gundagai region as part of the NSW Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund.
