Northmead Bowled Over By Community Grant

Baulkham Hills MP David Elliott was joined by Treasurer Mike Baird to announce a $19,650 lighting upgrade for Northmead Bowling Club.

 Mr Elliott said the upgrades were made possible by the Community Building Partnerships Programme.

 “Building and restoring local infrastructure as well as supporting local construction jobs and businesses are a welcome boost in enhancing local investment in the Baulkham Hills community,” Mr Elliott said.

 “Northmead Bowling Club not only provides a wonderful local hospitality venue, but also valuable sporting facilities, with an emphasis on our community elders.

 “These funds will ensure that Northmead Bowling Club maintains its place in the local community as a leading sporting and social organization.”

 Mr Baird said the funding was part of the NSW Government’s commitment to local communities across New South Wales.

 “The NSW Government is getting on with the job to rebuild NSW by investing almost $60 billion for infrastructure across the State over the next four years to fix the infrastructure backlog left by the previous NSW Labor Government,” Mr Baird said.

 “While we are delivering major infrastructure projects, such as the North West Rail Link, we understand the importance of local community infrastructure and potential benefits for local businesses.

 “There was strong competition for the available funds and a high level of interest from the community with over 2,700 applications received across the state in total.

 “I look forward to seeing the benefits to our state as projects such as the Northmead Bowling Club upgrade are undertaken and put into use across New South Wales,” Mr Baird said.
