Tarrington Cricket Club is set to benefit with a grant under the Morrison Governments Stronger Communities Programme.
Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan today announced $15,000 in funding, enabling the Tarrington Cricket Club to update their cricket nets and improve player safety.
“The cricket nets will ensure the nets meet the Australian Safety Standards and increase usage of the facility,” Mr Tehan said.
“These investments have a significant impact in a local community such as Tarrington, including encouraging greater community participation and social networks, improving local amenities, and of course providing lasting upgrades or equipment which supports our communities in future opportunities for growth,” said Mr Tehan.
Adam Bester, Tarrington Cricket Club said “we are thrilled to receive funding from the Stronger Communities Program. This funding will be used to upgrade the cricket nets at Tarrington Oval. These new nets will enable us to safely and effectively train our rapidly growing and inclusive club of adults and kids and increase usage for the wider Tarrington community.”
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the Government’s nationwide investment of $22.65 million under Round 6 of the program will strengthen communities right across Australia.
“At the heart of this great country lie our fantastic local communities and throughout COVID-19, they worked to keep Australia as COVID-free as possible and have driven our economic recovery by getting back out there and doing all the things they do best,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
“This investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme is about invigorating these communities and ensuring their continued success.
“The program funds small capital projects in each of the 151 Federal electorates, which can range from upgrading the local community hall or sporting facility, building new bike paths or providing essential equipment for the local State Emergency Service.”
Round 6 of the program will continue to support Australia’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
