Terrigal Wamberal Rugby League Club and Hardys Bay Community Church will benefit from Round 3 of the State Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the funding would benefit clubs and organisations, as well as the wider Central Coast community.
“The Terrigal Wamberal Rugby League Club is based at Brendan Franklin Oval and has been a launching pad for many NRL players over the past few years,” Crouch said.
“The Club will receive $250,000 to install footpaths, a spectator bench, shade areas and sandstone blocks.
“At Hardys Bay Community Church, the 100-year-old gabled metal roof will be replaced and re-sheeted thanks to $51,443 in new funding.
“In addition to providing a meeting space for the church community, this facility is also used for school dance classes, exercise classes, playgroups, fundraisers and social functions.”
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW, John Barilaro, said $100M was being distributed across regional NSW, with regional communities set to benefit from more than 550 new projects.
The $400M Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the Government’s $1.7B Regional Growth Fund, which is being invested in local programs and infrastructure that improve the lives of people living in regional NSW.
