Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead has delivered good news to 33 community groups across the Myall lakes who have secured grant funding as part of the NSW Government’s 2017 Community Building Partnership (CBP) program.

The NSW Government has committed $300,000 of funding to new community infrastructure projects around Myall Lakes that will enhance much needed local facilities.

Mr Bromhead said he was pleased to announce this funding for those projects that enhance the amenity of our community.

The funding will aim to create more vibrant and inclusive communities and deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.

“This grassroots funding will directly benefit our community and will deliver vital new infrastructure and help pay for much-needed improvements to local sports facilities, parks, halls and clubs,” Mr Bromhead said.

  • Wingham Show Society – repair and upgrade facilities within the Rodeo Arena area of Wingham Showground
