Community, sporting, cultural and musical groups are some of the local community projects set to benefit from Wingecarribee Shire Council’s latest round of community grants.

Fifty three community projects totalling $127,148 were allocated funding as part of the 2014/15 Wingecarribee Community Assistance Scheme.

Projects to receive funding include:

  • Equipment for sporting groups
  • A new projector and sound upgrade for Bundanoon Soldier’s Memorial Hall
  • An electronic keyboard for the Serendipity Choir
  • Printing of the Bowral Bowling Club Centenary Book 1914 – 2014
  • New chairs for community group meeting rooms
  • Production of a cultural awareness DVD
  • Banners and promotional items for community events

Of the fifty three grants allocated, fourteen will receive donations of $500 whilst the remaining thirty nine will receive grants ranging from $500 to $7,000.

Chair of the Community Grants Assistance Committee, Councillor Duncan Gair said the spread of grants would benefit the entire community.

“The Community Assistance Scheme allows the local community to work with Council by implementing projects that due to limited resources would otherwise not be possible”, he said.

A full list of this year’s recipients is available on Council’s website:

A cheque presentation will take place at 5.30pm on Wednesday 6 August during Local Government Week.
