MEDIA RELEASE - Council delivers $104K to the community

8 April 2021

Cash injections for hall upgrades, community events and junior development programs will be delivered in the latest round of Glenelg Shire Council’s Community Grants program.

A total of 54 shire-wide community not-for-profit groups and organisations shared in the funding round, valued at $104,000.

Among the beneficiaries were the Heywood Golf Club which received $1,000 to purchase junior golf equipment, $5,000 for the Casterton Scout Group for roof upgrades plus $900 for Seaview House for outdoor seating for residents.

The Leadership Great South Coast Group will also receive $1,000 towards their Indigenous War Memorial Mural Project, $800 will go towards the Nelson Committee of Management to replace history signage and the Dartmoor Football Netball Club will receive $5,000 towards a new ticket booth.

Glenelg Shire Councillors awarded the funding to the successful recipients at the recent community presentation night in Heywood.

Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said Council was proud to provide ongoing support to the shire’s not-for-profit organisations and hardworking volunteers.

“These grants can be the difference to these hard-working volunteers realising their project goals. Whilst their fundraising efforts are ongoing, these funds provide security to turn plans into a reality,” she said.

“Importantly all money delivered through our grants program will be injected straight back into the local economy to support our local community groups, businesses and tradespeople.

“It is particularly pleasing to see so many applications awarded through this funding round, highlighting the many exciting projects, programs and events that are on the horizon for our Shire.”
