Wilmington Oval Management Committee
Posted on Tuesday, 12 December, 2017
Oval Management Committee will be able to erect a verandah and replace worn and
damaged carpet with funding of $9,600 through the Federal Government’s Stronger
Communities Program (SCP).
Federal Member for Grey Rowan
Ramsey said he is very pleased the committee has received funding to improve
facilities at the oval.
“This facility is pivotal to the
area and is used for recreation, private functions and events and celebrations,
” Mr Ramsey said.
“The facility is extensively used
but requires revitalisation to ensure its future sustainability.
“The old damaged carpet needs
replacing while verandas will give shelter for outdoor events.
“A barbeque area will be included
to make best use of the facilities.
“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.
