Port Neill Progress Association to benefit from Stronger Communities Grant
Posted on Tuesday, 12 December, 2017
The Port Neill
Progress Association will be able to continue to develop the Port Neill Men’s
Shed with funding of $5000 through the Federal Government’s Stronger
Communities Program (SCP).
Federal Member for Grey Rowan
Ramsey said he is very pleased the Green Shed in Port Neill is being restored
and a section of the shed converted into a Men’s Shed.
He was very impressed with the
quality of the workmanship of the new seats and tables when he visited the shed
“The Green Shed is a land
mark in Port Neill where the town gathers for community events and has been in
need of restoration work which has included installing new doors,
barbecues, benches and tables,” Mr Ramsey said.
“It has been my experience Men’s Sheds provide support
and friendship not only to their members, but to any community organisations
who need their help.
“I am very
pleased we have made these Federal Government funds available through the
Stronger Communities Program to help small community groups.”
Government’s Stronger Communities Programme offers grants of between $2,500 and
$20,000 for small capital projects.
