WELCOME FUNDS TO GROW GREENER GREENS
Portland Bowling Club will continue to have some of the best greens in the region thanks to a successful application for Community Building Partnership (CBP) funding from the NSW Government.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the program aims to support self-funded community hubs that provide recreational activities for the whole of the community, run primarily by volunteers.
“It was great to visit the Portland Bowling Club and officially announce the success of their application for $12,000 through CBP program,” Mr Toole said.
“The funding will see the purchase of a new mower and new scarifier – two vital pieces of plant equipment that keep the playing surfaces in tip top condition.
“Right across our Electorate, community groups and organisations struggle to find the funds to grow, enhance and maintain these wonderful meeting places. I commend the Portland Bowling Club for continuing to serve and enhance recreational activities in the community.”
The NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership invests in infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes, while promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.
