The funding is part of the Community Building Partnerships program, a NSW Government initiative which aims to create more vibrant communities by supporting projects that deliver positive social, environmental, inclusive or recreational outcomes.
Spring Plains may only be a small community but it has a huge heart and contributes a large amount to charity through the Spring Plains events of which they have had many over the past 20 years..
Well over $100,000 has been donated to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service since the event was started and continues next year with a long lunch with Tuscan theme in March 2017 hosts are preparing for the big event.
The community of Spring Plains is thrilled to see this project funded as the hall is such an integral part of the community and there is an enthusiastic committee behind it. Only just yesterday they held their annual Christmas Tree which has been going now for over 30 years.
Local contractors will be used to complete the infrastructure works, further boosting the community.
