Cornubia Park Netball Association has been granted $10,160 in Federal funding under the Stronger Communities Programme (Round 5) to build a new equipment shed at their club house.
Federal member for Forde Bert van Manen said the funding will help the club store additional and new training equipment safely on club grounds.
“This will also reduce the overloading of club facilities and off-site storage and insurance costs for the committee,” he said.
“It’s important to undertake these capital projects that benefit not only club members and volunteers, but also the wider community by improving participation and advancement of the sport.”
Cornubia Park Netball Association Vice President Kerri Greig said the new shed will help clear up the club house to make way for eating and meeting areas for umpires and room for the committee and club members to store their bags safely.
“Having a storage shed would also allow for us to purchase additional training equipment to cater for all our members and age groups and have easier access to all these items for our members and volunteers,” she said.
The Australian Government’s funding commitment for Round Five was $22.65 million, with funding of up to $150,000 available for each electorate. The Stronger Communities Programme (SCP) provides grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 to community organisations and local governments for small capital projects that deliver social benefits for local communities.
