Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional Infrastructure and Services Andrew Stoner along with Local Member for Dubbo Troy Grant today announced $50,000 for improvements to Crown reserves across the local region.

Projects to be funded include:

· $16,000 to refurbish the Pavilion kitchen, which has been severely damaged by termites at the Eugowra Showground

· $8,000 to upgrade electricity supply poles and hardware at the Parkes Showground

· $19,000 to refurbish the kitchen and install new floor coverings in the supper room and kitchen at the Rawsonville Recreation Reserve and Hall

· $7,000 for maintenance and repairs of the historic Garema Hall, including guttering, external doors and windows.

The funding is part of the Government’s $16.9m Public Reserves Management Fund Program.

“The purpose of the Public Reserves Management Fund Program is to support the development, maintenance and protection of Crown land reserves across NSW,” Mr Stoner said.

“The grants and low interest loans offered to Crown reserve trust managers will be used to make improvements to infrastructure and amenities as well as purchase much needed equipment.

Mr Grant said he was pleased to see important community assets benefit from the funding.

"Crown reserves are wonderful assets valued by local communities and their ongoing success is vital to sports, clubs, business and tourism in regional towns.”
