re­plac­ing their cracked cov­er­ing which dates back 50 years. I granted Cher­ry­brook Scouts $8,000 for a hall ex­ten­sion so they can keep up with de­mand. Nor­man­hurst Scouts also re­ceived $8,000 for the ren­o­va­tion of their age­ing kitchen. Asquith Scouts were thrilled with their $8,000 grant, which al­lows them to in­crease ac­ces­si­bil­ity through a dis­abled ramp.

Fi­nally, Mount Co­lah/Mount Ku-ring-Gai Scout Group se­cured $2,500 for new shelv­ing – help­ing them to prop­erly store the equip­ment they work so hard to ac­quire through fundrais­ing.

Recre­ation clubs are an­other im­por­tant com­mu­nity as­set, keep­ing us con­nected and ac­tive. Proper fa­cil­i­ties pro­mote par­tic­i­pa­tion in these clubs, and I’m pleased many will be strength­ened as a re­sult of our fund­ing. Beecroft Recre­ation club has ben­e­fited from $5,000 for re-car­pet­ing. The club has a his­tory dat­ing back more than 100 years and up­keep projects en­sure it has a vi­able and vi­brant fu­ture. The re-car­peted area will be cel­e­brated by the many groups who use the venue, in­clud­ing chil­dren’s chess classes, bridge clubs and Probus clubs. Chel­tenham Recre­ation Club is also cel­e­brat­ing their new cor­ru­gated roof on their cro­quet club­house, thanks to a $8,930 grant cov­er­ing half their costs.

Among the other or­gan­i­sa­tions that I’ve been proud to present fund­ing to, are sport­ing groups like Cher­ry­brook’s Green­way Gi­ants, the Hornsby Ku-ring­gai Sail­ing Club and Hornsby Berowra Ju­nior AFL Club.
