The Baradine community has received a most welcome boost with the announcement of a $15,000 grant to upgrade the local showground pavilion.
Member for Parkes Mark Coulton has congratulated Camp Cypress on their successful application, which has been funded under Round Four of the Coalition Government’s Stronger Communities Programme (SCP).
“This funding is an excellent investment in an important community asset at Baradine, which will be matched by a joint contribution from Camp Cypress and Moorambilla Voices,” Mr Coulton said.
“The pavilion upgrade, which includes roof repairs and restorations to the floors and walls, will transform and regenerate this wonderful local venue so that it can be fully utilised by Camp Cypress, Moorambilla Voices, schools and many others.
“I am very pleased to congratulate Camp Cypress on their grant, and I have no doubt the showground pavilion upgrade will go a long way to keep this great community going.”
In July last year, the Australian Government announced the launch of Round Four of the SCP. The Government’s funding commitment for Round Four is $22.5 million, with up to $150,000 for each electorate. A maximum of 20 projects will be funded in each electorate, with successful projects receiving a grant between $2,500 and $20,000.
