Member for Penrith, Stuart Ayres met with Daniel Myles the Mayor of Blue Mountains City Council (BMCC) to congratulate them on their successful grant of $16,962 for work at Lapstone Oval.
“The project for Lapstone Oval includes sporting grounds, goal posts and fencing after BMCC put in a successful application to the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Program”, said Mr Ayres.
“The project will benefit users of Blue Mountains sporting grounds by providing alternative training areas to reduce wear and poor field conditions in high wear areas and sporting groups will benefit by the installation of goal posts and a fence at Lapstone Oval, the fence will hopefully prevent balls from entering surrounding bushland”, Mr Ayres said.
Lapstone Oval is a sports stadium that supports sport all year round, with rugby union fields, netball and tennis courts and a cricket pitch.
\”I am proud to have recommended this project for funding to the state government and appreciate the opportunity to make a contribution to decisions about state government investments in our area”, said Mr Ayres.
“I would like to thank Stuart Ayres for his continued support of the lower mountains community. I have no doubt these important upgrades to Lapstone oval will benefit the many sporting and community organisations who use this facility.” Said Mr Myles
\”I will continue to work with BMCC other local organisations to find ways to assist them in their capacity to support our community, “said Mr Ayres.
\”The Community Building Partnerships provide an excellent way for organisations to work with their local MPs to identify priorities for our community”, said Mr Ayres.
