Netball players will be well sheltered with community grant

BRUNSWICK Byron Netball Association has scored a goal after receiving $20,000 in federal funding to construct a community shelter under the Stronger Communities Programme.

"I congratulate Brunswick Byron Netball Association on this important project,” Richmond MP Justine Elliot said.

"They will contribute to the federal funding of $20,000 bringing the total value of the project to $41,422 for the construction of a community shelter at the Mullumbimby Recreation Ground.

"The project will allow for the construction of an all-weather structure consisting of a concrete floor with a skillion metal roof and no walls.

Ms Elliot said the all-purpose structure will be positioned between the netball courts and the Barry Lomath Oval and will be available for users of both facilities.

Game days can typically attract up to 500 visitors making such a facility invaluable for both players and spectators. 

"Our local Stronger Communities Programme delivers funding across the Richmond electorate for small capital grants supporting projects that will contribute to the vibrancy and viability of our region,” Ms Elliot said.

"I'll always fight to get our fair share from Canberra. This funding is part of the more than $2 billion that I've delivered for local roads, schools, health and community resources.”
