Minnie Water Wooli Surf Lifesaving Club secures Federal Government grant

Minnie Water Wooli Surf Life Saving will be able to assess the viability of operating a bus to carry members from Grafton to the beach, following the announcement of a Federal Government grant.

Federal Member for Cowper, Luke Hartsuyker, announced this week that $5000 had been approved for the club to address transport issues relating to surf life saving members who are too young to have their own transport.

“We all know what a tremendous service our surf lifesavers provide,” Mr Hartsuyker said.

“However a lack of transport has been identified as a major obstacle for many people from Grafton and the surrounding area who want to join the Minnie Water Wooli surf lifesaving movement.

“This funding will assist the club in its commitment to improving transport links for those participating in training and patrolling activities.”

Mr Hartsuyker said the funding for the club had been approved under the Regional Solutions Programme.

“Regional Solutions is a four year funding programme designed to help regional and rural communities find a solution to their local challenges,” Mr Hartsuyker said.

“The Federal Government is working in partnership with these communities to unlock the nation’s true potential and restore equity to our regions.

“The flexible nature of the Regional Solutions Programme means applications can be lodged at any time,” Mr Hartsuyker said.
