NEDLANDS sporting clubs will benefit from the latest round of the State Government’s Community Sporting Recreation Facilities Fund, with $70,000 allocated to upgrading David Cruickshank Reserve.

The funding, which is part of $8.4 million to be spent on projects around WA for 2017-18 funding round, will benefit football and cricket teams in the western suburbs.

Acting Premier Liza Harvey said the latest round of funding went directly to supporting grassroots sport.

“Sporting clubs are often the life blood of local communities and bring people together, which is why the Liberal National Government has made an unprecedented investment in grassroots sporting facilities, making a difference to people’s everyday lives,” she said.

Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies said sport and recreation was one of the most effective investments a government could make.

“A community can come together around sport where clubs, recreation centres and pools provide a hub for social connection,” she said.
