Member for Barker, Tony Pasin MP, has announced that the Bordertown Football Club has been successful in their funding application in latest round of the Morrison Government’s Stronger Communities Programme.

Under the funding program the Bordertown Football Club will receive $15,000 to replace the existing scoreboard with a new electronic version.

Mr Pasin said the Government has committed $150,000 to fund local community infrastructure projects across Barker as part of a $22.65 million nation-wide investment nationwide under Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme.

“Investments in local infrastructure bring our communities together, strengthen social connections, build community participation and create vibrant and viable communities into the future,” Mr Pasin said.

Mr Pasin said the Stronger Communities Programme was aimed at funding projects that deliver social benefits as part of the Government’s continuing commitment to strengthen communities across Australia.

“Investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme is about invigorating these communities and ensuring their continued success,” Mr Pasin said. 

“A new electronic scoreboard will more than just keep football scores it will add flexibility for other users of the ground and ultimately benefit the whole community.”
