- Local contractors and suppliers engaged to carry out upgrades, supporting local jobs and small businesses
Leeming Bowls and Recreation Club will soon have new shade shelters, seating, synthetic surrounds, lighting, and a barbecue and patio area, thanks to upgrades championed by Jandakot MLA Yaz Mubarakai.
Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray today joined Mr Mubarakai at Leeming Bowls and Recreation Club to deliver $149,000 of funding to complete the project, which will be finished by June.
Funded through Local Projects, Local Jobs, the upgrades will improve playing conditions and the social environment of the 210-member club - which is a hub for community activity in the Leeming area.
Local landscaping, patio building and lighting businesses are carrying out the upgrades, supporting small businesses and local jobs.
The McGowan Government's Local Projects, Local Jobs program is supporting more than 200 community sport and recreation projects across the State, creating jobs and building stronger and healthier communities.
Comments attributed to Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray:
"Bowling clubs are so valuable in our communities where they provide important social hubs for people to meet and recreate.
"Yaz Mubarakai knows his community and recognises the value in maintaining and growing memberships at local recreation clubs.
"The upgrades will also provide valuable investment in the community, with the construction creating local jobs and supporting small businesses."
Comments attributed to Jandakot MLA Yaz Mubarakai:
"I'm pleased that this grant will cover important upgrades at a great facility, for a suburban sport that brings local players together to maintain active, healthy lifestyles.
"Not only will the upgrades mean that more community members can be welcomed to the club to socialise and play, the construction is providing valuable business for local landscaping, patio building and lighting businesses.
"I am pleased that the McGowan Government sees the importance of supporting Leeming Bowls and Recreation Club, and other important community facilities."
