Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith, met with Mr Ken Forti, President of Emu Plains Little Athletics Club (EPLAC) to view their discus upgrades following the announcement earlier this year on their successful application for funding through the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Program.
“Emu Plains Little Athletics Club received a grant of $5,000 under the 2013 Community Building Partnership Program,” said Stuart Ayres.
Mr Forti said the EPLAC was delighted to receive the funds and the upgraded discus nets have already been put to good use.
This year membership at EPLAC has reached 430 making it one of the largest athletics clubs in the area. The club encourages all their athletes to do their very best, to have fun and get fit in a safe and friendly environment, and to “strive with honor”.
Stuart Ayres said it was my privilege to have recommended this project for funding and it’s great to see the benefits it provides for our community.
“Our club is very appreciative of this grant which was organised by Stuart and we thank him for his continued support of our club,” added Mr Forti.
