FUNDING GAME SET FOR YASS LAWN TENNIS CLUB
The Yass Lawn Tennis Club (YLTC) has secured $12,000 in funding for repairs and upgrade of the Clubhouse roof through the NSW Government’s 2018 Community Building Partnership (CBP) Program.
Member for Goulburn, Pru Goward recently joined Liberal Candidate for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman, YLTC Executives Greg Martin, Paul Twohill, Michele Whitters and Lorraine Glover to inspect the roof and discuss the restoration project.
Ms Goward said the State Government funds will provide much-needed improvements to the YLTC for meets and events.
“The CBP program is fantastic for the Goulburn electorate - the grassroots funding means the YLTC can help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community", Ms Goward said.
Ms Tuckerman said the NSW Government’s strong economic management ensures we are in a position to invest in these important local projects like the YLTC. “I congratulate Paul Twohill, Greg Martin and Michele Whitters as well as all of the organisations that were successful in their Community Building Partnership applications – I look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for community groups in the area,” Ms Tuckerman said.
Ms Witters thanked the NSW Government for providing the funding.
“The funding will ensure the Clubhouse remains a hub for tennis enthusiasts and also for other groups in the Yass community,” Ms Witters said.
The Community Building Partnership program has funded some 13,800 community projects since it commenced nearly a decade ago.
