Six projects across the Hilltops region have received funding in the latest round of funds from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.

A total of $1,701,742 will be spent across the projects. The Bribbaree Show Society will receive $110,000 to erect and fit out a purpose-built poultry shed.

The Young PCYC will receive $101,798 to transform the gymnastics program, install netting, purchase new equipment and undertake minor building works. This program will provide 1000 hours of classes to attendees experiencing socio-economic disadvantage.

The Young Pony Club will receive $84,720 to build new under cover stables.

The Scout Association of Australia Young Branch will receive $160,000 to repair and upgrade their meeting hall including improvements to the kitchen. The Wombat Progress Association will receive $107,698 to upgrade the sports court area at Wombat Sports and Recreation Ground.

The Young Aquatic Centre redevelopment will also receive a further $1,137,526 in funding. This funding will complete stage 2A of the centre redevelopment which includes the installation of a combined splash pool and splash pad and supporting filtration systems, concrete concourse surrounds, shade sails and seating. This brings the total of funding from the NSW Government for the Young Aquatic Centre redevelopment to more than $2.8 million.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said she was delighted these projects had secured funding. “These projects are all about making our communities even more liveable, I want to congratulate everyone who was involved in these applications,” Ms Cooke said.

“So many of these developments are about improving access to facilities to help more people get active, from the Young Pony Club’s project which will improve conditions for Riding for the Disabled participants and other riders, to improving Wombat’s sports court, to the fantastic Young Aquatic Centre redevelopment.”

“This funding will also help improve facilities for important local events. There truly is something for everyone in this round of grants and I want to congratulate all the successful applicants,” said Ms Cooke. For more information, visit:
