State Member for the Electorate of Cessnock, Clayton Barr, MP, dropped by the Kurri Kurri Girl Guides Hall today to see the newly completed kitchen which was part funded by the Community Building Partnership Program 2018.
The Community Building Partnership Program (CBPP), first introduced by the Labor Government in 2009 has provided funding to thousands of community groups, sporting clubs and councils across NSW to build or upgrade local facilities.
The program awards grants to the community to invest in infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes, while promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.
Kurri Kurri Girl Guides were successful in gaining $8,262 under the CBPP to update the kitchen, replacing masonite cupboards and storage, installing a splash back and replacing the kitchen floor. The group used local kitchen company Kookaburra Kitchen to maximise the space with custom build cupboards.
Mr Barr said “It is always great to see funding being injected into our community.”
“The Kurri Kurri Girl Guides are an institution in our community and it is fantastic that these works could be completed in time for their 70th Birthday and the renovations will allow the guides to continue their great contribution to local area.”
