Funds fil­lip for or­gan­i­sa­tions

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

FIVE lo­cal com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions and sports clubs will share in more than $34,000 of fed­eral fund­ing to go to­wards much needed equip­ment.

The East Fre­man­tle Lawn Ten­nis Club, East Fre­man­tle Lacrosse and Cricket Clubs, Fre­man­tle Hockey Club, White Gum Val­ley Com­mu­nity Orchard and Na­tive ARC will all re­ceive be­tween $5000 and $18,179 for up­grades and new equip­ment.

Fre­man­tle MHR Melissa Parke said it would be great to see the money put to good use in the area, with the po­ten­tial for more to ben­e­fit.

“I cer­tainly hope that the four fur­ther round one ap­pli­ca­tions, which were rec­om­mended for ap­proval by my com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion panel last Oc­to­ber, also see their fund­ing granted in the near fu­ture,” she said.

She said lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions such as the Fre­man­tle Com­mu­nity Mens Shed were al­ready putting in ap­pli­ca­tions for Round 2, which closed at the end of the month. Visit www.in­vest­ment.in­fra­struc­ture.gov.au.
