The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH -

The Hant’s Har­bour recre­ation com­mit­tee has re­ceived $15,000 to help com­plete the town’s re­gional sports cen­tre.

“Once com­pleted, this year-round fa­cil­ity will be used by res­i­dents in the area for var­i­ous sport, recre­ation and so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties,” said Tourism, Cul­ture and Recre­ation Min­is­ter Terry French.

“It is en­cour­ag­ing to sup­port such a project to pro­vide peo­ple, par­tic­u­larly chil­dren and youth, with a safe place to par­tic­i­pate in healthy and fun phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties.”

The com­mit­tee is among more than 50 com­mu­nity-based or­ga­ni­za­tions, mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties and recre­ation com­mis­sions that have re­ceived fund­ing to up­grade their recre­ation and sport in­fra­struc­ture through these lat­est cap­i­tal grant pro­gram in­vest­ments.

“In­vest­ments in recre­ational in­fra­struc­ture pro­vide ad­di­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties for res­i­dents to par­tic­i­pate in sports and leisure pro­grams,” said Child, Youth and Family Ser­vices Min­is­ter and Trin­ity-Bay de Verde MHA Char­lene John­son.

This year’s provin­cial bud­get pro­vides $ 11.5 mil­lion to sup­port recre­ation and sport.
