The Gilgandra and wider community has received a most welcome boost with the announcement of a $5,139 grant to pay for new furniture in the Curban Community Hall.
Member for Parkes Mark Coulton has congratulated Gilgandra Shire Council on their successful application, which has been funded under Round Four of the Coalition Government’s Stronger Communities Programme (SCP).
“This grant is an excellent investment in an important community asset in Curban,” Mr Coulton said.
“Council will use their funding to purchase 125 new resin chairs for the Curban Community Hall.
“The addition of this new furniture will ensure the hall continues to be a popular community venue for weddings and other events. I congratulate council on their grant.”
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.

More information about further successful projects in the Parkes electorate will be made available in the near future.
