Member for Kiama Gareth Ward MP has today presented funding to representatives from the Gerringong Lions Rugby League Football Club to upgrade their facilities.
Mr Ward was joined at this announcement by Gerringong Lions Club President Daryl Hobbs during a special presentation at Michael Cronin Oval in Gerringong.
“I was extremely pleased to be able to secure this funding under the New South Wales Government's Local Sport Grants Program which will go towards the installation of new goal posts at Michael Cronin Oval,” he said.
“These funds come on top of previous grants I have secured for the Gerringong Lions Club who are very well supported by the local Gerringong community in the local Group Seven Rugby League competition.
“I would like to acknowledge the Club President Daryl Hobbs who has been a tireless advocate for the club for many years and has worked extremely hard to see major upgrades to club facilities come to fruition.
The Gerringong Lions Rugby League Football Club President Daryl Hobbs also welcomed the funding announcement from Gareth Ward MP for Kiama.
“On behalf of the Gerringong RLFC members, our valued supporters and volunteers, I wish to thank Gareth Ward MP for Kiama and the Grants Unit at Sport NSW for the opportunity to apply for financial funding for upgrades to our local sporting facility at Michael Cronin Oval,” he said.
“Without their support and confidence in us achieving our goals these important and very much needed improvements for our sporting participants including the community of Gerringong would not exist,” Mr Hobbs concluded.
