Nearly half a million dollars will help to breath new life into community and local sporting facilities in the Liverpool Plains Shire.
It comes from round two of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
The council secured funding for four projects, which include upgrades to playgrounds, sporting, and community facilities.
“This is a great win for our local Quirindi community, and I know many families and sporting associations, young and old, will make the most of these facility upgrades when they are eventually completed,” Upper Hunter MP Michael Johnsen said.
“This means the Nationals in Government are delivering a total of $499,655 to our Liverpool Plains Shire for these important and much-loved community and sporting facilities.
The four projects in the Liverpool Plains Shire that were successful for full funding are:
- Quirindi Heritage Village Trainworld Room and Shelter Shed $97,776
- Quirindi Showground Arena Amenities $221,940
- Royal Theatre Kitchen $101,970
- Spring Ridge Oval Fence $77,969
“I congratulate our Quirindi community and Council on this win and look forward to seeing the improvements in our local sports and community facility that will make our town an even more attractive place to work and raise a family,” Mr Johnsen said.
“The $300 million Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the Nationals in Government’s $1.6 billion Regional Growth Fund that is employing our local tradies, putting our local suppliers to work and providing the right environment to operate regional businesses.”
