Callala Beach Community Hall will be able to enjoy a brand new air conditioning unit thanks to a grant received by Shoalhaven City Council from the NSW government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Council submitted a number of grant applications (as well as allocating its own resources and funding to complement the grant application), to improve a number of community halls that require equipment.
Mayor Amanda Findley said Council has been extremely fortunate to receive $62,570 funding for five community halls, to install air conditioning.
The halls receiving the new equipment will include: Callala Beach Community Hall, Callala Community Centre, Culburra Beach Community Centre, Sussex Inlet Community Centre and the Bomaderry Community Centre.
Mayor Findley said, “Council appreciates the support from the NSW Government and South Coast MP Shelley Hancock who secured $62,570 from the government to provide the upgrades to the halls, ensuring users, community and volunteers can use the halls comfortably all year round.”
Callala Beach Community Hall Management Committee was pleased to receive the grant as their current air conditioning unit is broken.
“Council maintains 27 halls and centres across the Shoalhaven, with many ageing and needing upgrades. Funding like this is vital to ensure our buildings are maintained for current and future generations to use,” Mayor Findley said.
