The Bordertown Hockey Club has an upgraded kitchen facility in part to a Federal Government Grant of $5,000 through the Stronger Communities Program.
Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP visited the Club last week to see the newly installed kitchen at the clubrooms.
“This funding has helped to ensure the Bordertown Hockey Club remains sustainable for new and existing members into the future. It also offers upgraded facilities for other community groups to use,” Mr Pasin said.
Mr Pasin said the Stronger Communities program is aimed at funding projects that deliver social and economic benefits and form part of the Coalition Government’s continuing commitment to strengthen local communities across Australia.
“Our local communities and the community clubs and groups within them are the heart of this country and the investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme is about just that – strengthening communities and ensuring they have the facilities and the infrastructure to remain vibrant, great places to live into the future,” Mr Pasin said.
