Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith visited Greygums Oval to announce that the Penrith RAMS will receive a grant of $80,000 through the NSW Government’s 2018 Community Building Partnership program.
Stuart Ayres said the State Government funds will go towards the construction of the second amenities block at the oval.
“This investment will allow for improvements to the club amenities and will build on the works that are already under way at Greygums Oval.”
Greygums Oval is used by over 500 participants each week from AFL, Little Athletics, school activity groups and outdoor fitness classes.
Greg Corless, representative of the Club welcomed the funding and said “On behalf of our club members I would like to thank Stuart Ayres for this funding that will ensure our players and volunteers have a clean, modern and safe environment.”
“I congratulate Penrith RAMS on their successful application and look forward to seeing how this project makes a difference for the players and wider community,” said Stuart Ayres.
Stuart Ayres said the NSW Government’s strong economic management ensures we are in a position to invest in these important local projects.
The Community Building Partnership program has funded some 13,800 community projects since it commenced nearly a decade ago.
