Members of the West Toowoomba Croquet Club will benefit from new and improved facilities with the help of a grant from Round 5 of the Coalition Government’s Stronger Communities program.
Federal Member for Groom John McVeigh joined members of the West Toowoomba Croquet Club today to announce the funding and inspect some of the work that is being undertaken.
“The West Toowoomba Croquet Club has been a vital part of Toowoomba’s sporting and social life for generations and I am very pleased the Morrison Government is able to provide some support to improve its facilities,” Dr McVeigh said.
“The $2,500 grant will towards sanding, patching, mould treatment and fully painting the club house – which will make a big difference for club members and anyone using the club house venue.”
Dr McVeigh said the West Toowoomba Croquet Club was an important part of our community hosting both junior and senior players up to five days a week.
“Since 1925 the West Toowoomba Croquet club has been a key part of our community’s sporting and social landscape providing a great opportunity for people of all ages to improve their skills, stay active and meet new friends in a friendly club environment,” he said.
Dr McVeigh said the Stronger Communities program provided much-needed support for local community organisations across the country.
“I am very proud to be able to support local organisations in the Groom electorate like the West Toowoomba Croquet Club. It is one of 18 vital local community groups to receive funding under Round 5 of the Stronger Communities program in our region.
The people that make up these important organisations work tirelessly for the benefit of the wider community and I am truly grateful for what they do.”
