Can-Do Canteen Repairs

Federal Member for Blaxland Jason Clare has visited the completed $9,000 upgrade to Bankstown City Netball Association’s canteen at Deverall Park that he funded through his Stronger Communities Fund.

Mr Clare said “The upgrades replaced flooring in the canteen, two offices and the representatives’ equipment room which hadn’t been repaired since the 1960s.”

Jessica Cherry, Secretary of BCNA said “These new floors are a huge improvement; the old surface was coming up in places and was a real hazard to the girls.”

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.
