The Member for Dubbo Troy Grant visited Wongarbon today to see how funds through the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership program will be used to improve the Wongarbon Hall.

Earlier this year NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell announced the roll out of $35 million for 1424 community projects throughout the state.

Dubbo City Council received $57,500 for improvements to the Wongarbon Hall and for lighting upgrades at the South Dubbo Oval.

"It's exciting to be here in Wongarbon to see how the money will be spent improving an important community asset," said Mr Grant.

"The Dubbo Electorate had 15 projects ranging from $4,000 to $100,000 that received funding through the program, making a great impact on the day to day lives of our communities.

“Local construction and trades jobs and local businesses stand to benefit from the activity as community infrastructure is built, refurbish or enhanced.

“I look forward to seeing the benefits of this upgrade for the Wongarbon community."
