Tatiara District Council received $1 million towards projects to boost the economy, social and community needs through the Morrison Government’s Drought Communities Program.

Member for Barker Tony Pasin said the Council projects are stimulating local community spending; using local resources, business and suppliers; and providing long-lasting benefits to communities and the agricultural industries on which they depend.

“Mundulla Netball Club received a grant of $63,000 to resurface the netball courts and upgrade existing lighting.” Mr Pasin said.

“I congratulate the Mundulla Netball Club on successfully completing this project. I know this upgrade was vital and had been a long time coming.”

“Across Barker I continue to support grassroots sporting clubs upgrade infrastructure because I recognise the wider health, social and community benefits that come from greater activity and participating in sport.” Mr Pasin said.

Mundulla Netball Club President Jess Wiese said the Federal Government grant has meant so much to the club and the entire community.

“The funding has provided us with the ability to up-grade the court surface and lights to a standard that is safe and meets Netball Australia standards.” Ms Wiese said.

“The club is proud of what we have achieved that was made possible by the Federal Drought Grant funding.” Ms Wiese said.
