Nationals Upper House Member, Sam Farraway visited Cabonne last week to announce over $800,000 from Round 3 of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund (SCCF) will be put towards projects in the Cabonne region.
The Canowindra Golf Club Limited will receive a grant of $79,119 for a new play- ground and outdoor function area upgrade including a new stainless steel BBQ, fridge and oven.
“I would like to thank the NSW Government for giving us this funding. We are wanting our Club to become a more family orientated and community friendly Club, allowing sporting groups to utilise the new area and for families to be able to have family functions and birthday parties at the Club,” said Canowindra Golf Club Manager Jaymee Crowe.
“These upgrades will hopefully make the Club a bit more sustainable and encourage some younger golfers and their families to join the Club. It might even enable us to employ a part time Groundskeeper,” said Canowindra Golf Club President Paul McKenzie.
“These projects are about bringing communities together, strengthening and supporting our social connections, and creating vibrant rural and regional communities for the future,” said Cabonne Mayor Kevin Beatty.
Cr Beatty thanked the NSW Government for their continuing support to Cabonne and congratulated the community organisations that submitted successful projects.
As part of the NSW Government grants the Cudal Tennis Club will also receive funding of $138,618 to create a multi-purpose sporting surface for the village.
