The Compass - - SPORTS -

A $15,000 grant has been awarded to the Whit­bourne Sports and Recre­ation Com­mit­tee for up­grades to Sir Robert Bond Park in the town.

The grant will be used to pur­chase pic­nic ta­bles, re­place a gazebo and up­grade the walk­ing trails lo­cated in the park.

The provin­cial govern­ment Com­mu­nity Cap­i­tal Grant is is­sued to com­mu­ni­ties that sup­port recre­ation, sport or ac­tive liv­ing pro- grams and to off­set the cost of con­serv­ing ex­ist­ing recre­ation fa­cil­i­ties.

This lo­ca­tion is one of many across the prov­ince that will ben­e­fit from the grant. Many com­mu­ni­ty­based or­ga­ni­za­tions, mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties, schools and recre­ation com­mis­sions have re­ceived fund­ing to up­grade their recre­ation and sport in­fra­struc­ture through th­ese in­vest­ments.
