Nothing to ‘Awn’ at.

Federal Member for Blaxland Jason Clare has inspected the $9,000 completed upgrade to awnings at St Stephen’s Anglican Church in Villawood that he funded through his Stronger Communities Fund.

Mr Clare said “I’m very excited to see this project complete and to be able to support our local Vietnamese community.”

“This important upgrade ensures that members of the St Stephen’s Anglican Church community in Villawood will have access to a high quality local community space we can all be proud of.”

The outdoor space is used for community events, like BBQ’s and dinners and can fit up to 40 people without having to worry about the weather.

The Stronger Communities Programme provides grants, between $5,000 and $20,000, to not-for-profit organisations for small capital works projects that improve our local community.

The Blaxland Consultation Committee has approved a total of 21 projects over two rounds, with $290,695 worth of grants contributed to works in our local community.
