Member for Ginninderra Alistair Coe announced today that if elected, a Canberra Liberals Government will provide a $350,000 grant towards a clubhouse for Wests Rugby. Mr Coe said this is a much needed facility to support a club that has been around for 50 years.
“Community sport facilities have been severely neglected under the ACT Labor Government,” Mr Coe said.
“The Canberra Liberals are committed to improving community facilities across the ACT to encourage greater participation in community activities and sport.
“That’s why we are committing a $350,000 grant towards a clubhouse for Wests Rugby in Belconnen.
“Improving the club’s facilities is part of our $3.5 million commitment to improve Canberra’s community sports facilities and also comes on top of our commitment to halve ground training and match fees.
“By improving sporting grounds and cutting training and match fees, we hope to encourage greater participation in these important activities.
“Upgrading sporting facilities around Canberra is an integral part of the Canberra Liberals’ plan to give Canberrans better local services and lower rates and charges,” Mr Coe concluded.
