Community Assistance Grants support local events and facilities
Community groups will benefit from nearly $7,000 in grants from Somerset Regional Council’s community assistance program.
Cr Kylee Isidro (pictured) said it was important that Council provided support to the volunteer groups and committees that host events in the region.
“I recently took my children toalocalweekendeventwhere they had the time of their lives, but it takes an enormous amount of work to plan and stage anything for public participation and attendance,” Cr Isidro said.
“Very often, there is a small band of people at the heart of these activities and their commitment to their community help make Somerset a welcoming and vibrant region.
“Council has approved three applications for community assistance, which will provide funds towards facility improvements and activities for our residents and others to enjoy.”
The approved applications were $1,000 to Minden P&C for the Minden Summer Festival; $3,905 to Kilcoy Race Club for repairs to the wash bay walls at Kilcoy Showground, and $2,500 to Kilcoy Rodeo Committee for the annual Kilcoy Rodeo.
