Media Release – Council Grants Workshop October 2016

Councillor Peter Cumming, Councillor for Wynnum Manly Ward invites community, sporting and not for profit groups to attend a Council Grant workshop on Thursday 6 October at 1pm to 3pm in the Wynnum Library.

Cr Cumming advises there are 3 grants about to open and some changes have been made to two of the grants.’

Two of these grants have been updated and  I encourage sporting and community clubs to submit an application form if they are considering building or expanding their facilities.  This is a great way to improve local facilities with council assistance.

The Men’s Shed Grants are specific for local Men’s Shed groups and I also encourage them to apply, said Cr Cumming.
