Community organisations in Temora and Ariah Park have secured funding totalling over $20,000 for projects through the NSW Government’s 2022 Community Building Partnership Program.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the funds will deliver much-needed improvements and equipment to local facilities.
“I congratulate the organisations that were successful in their application and look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for community groups in the area,” Ms Cooke said.
“I was delighted to drop into Temora Shed 4 Men to deliver the fantastic news they will receive $5,830 to purchase a sit-down lathe and stand for members.”
“This sit-down lathe and stand will make working on projects much more comfortable for the members, some who have trouble standing for long periods in comfort or are aided by walkers.”
Ariah Park Community Projects also successfully applied for funds, receiving $15,000 to purchase a rainbow projector bike to attract tourists as part of their light show. This projector will be used to project images and displays on local buildings including the silos in an attraction for the town, similar to Vivid in Sydney.
The Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 18,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009. For more information about the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Program, visit www.nsw.gov.au/cpb
