Investing In Surf Club Improvements
Member for Port Macquarie, Leslie Williams today encouraged surf clubs to apply to the NSW Government’s Surf Club Facilities Program which is now open to help fund upgrade and maintenance of surf club facilities.
Mrs Williams said the program aims to maintain the safety of surf life saving volunteers as they serve the community.
“The Surf Club Facilities Program provides funding for facilities in our area and across NSW.
“Grants are available from $40,000 to $350,000.
“We all know how important surf life savers are to beach side communities both through protecting us when we swim and providing opportunities for a diverse range of people to give back through volunteering.”
“Our local surf life savers also benefit through maintaining health and fitness while enjoying our beautiful beaches,” Mrs Williams said.
Types of projects that will be funded include:
construction of new surf club facilities;
capital enhancement of the facilities at existing clubs; and
providing ancillary and support facilities at existing venues.
Applications are open until 10 February 2017.
