Upgrades to Grassroots Sports Facilities Completed
Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Senator the Hon Marise Payne, recently announced the successful completion of upgrades to key sporting facilities in Lindsay following over $1 million in funding being provided for the projects by the Liberal-National Government.
The funding was delivered under the Australian Government’s Community Development Grant Program, a landmark scheme designed to support the upgrading of key infrastructure projects to promote economic growth and enhance liveability.
Funding locally included $120,000 for the upgrade to the canteen at Ched Towns Rugby League Fields, including the installation of two 25-metre light poles with new LED lighting.
Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Senator the Hon Marise Payne, who officially marked the completion of the projects at Jamison Park, said the Liberal-National Government had made a significant investment in grassroots sport in Penrith.
“As the Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, but also as a local resident, I know that the Penrith region is home to some of the most passionate and talented sports people in New South Wales” Senator Payne said.
“The completion of these upgrades means that local sporting teams and athletes have the modern facilities they need to get active, keep healthy and have fun.
“The successful delivery of this funding is further proof that the Liberal-National government’s plan for a stronger economy is working, and has help bring the Penrith community together in support of grassroots sport”.
