Eight community projects are the recipients of $1.31 million in funding through the state’s Stronger Country Community Fund.
The single biggest project to receive monies was Singleton’s Historical Museum with $539,000 towards their long awaited restoration work on their building located in Burdekin Park.
Member for Upper Hunter Michael Johnsen said Singleton secured NSW Government funding for eight projects, which include upgrades to playgrounds, sporting, and community facilities.
“As with the other beneficiaries of this funding in the seat of Upper Hunter, this is a great win for our Singleton community, and I know many of our local families and sporting associations, young and old, will make the most of these facility upgrades when they are eventually completed,” Mr Johnsen said.
“This means the Nationals in Government are delivering a total of $1,318,697 to our Singleton Shire for these important and much-loved community and sporting facilities.”
