Early in December 2020, Council was fortunate to receive funding from Resilience NSW for the Bushfire Community & Resilience Fund Grant, Phase 2 – Stream 1 of $62,500.

The object of this funding is to support communities to overcome the social impacts of the bush fires by funding projects and events that will provide community wellbeing, social and broader recovery and future disaster resilience.

Council advertised the availability of the grant funding to community organisations on 16 December with applications closing 15 January 2021.  This resulted in 7 applications being received for events within the Tenterfield Local Government Area.

The applications were considered by an Assessment Panel of Councillors and their recommendations presented to an Extraordinary Council Meeting on Friday, 29 January 2021.

 

“It gives me great pleasure to advise the allocation of grant funding to each of the following events,” said Mayor Peter Petty.

 

  • $15,000 to the Tenterfield Show Society for the Lift the Country Spirits Music Concert as part of the Autumn Festival – 3 April 2021;
  • $25,000 to Autumn Festival Inc for the Autumn Festival – 2 to 5 April 2021;
  • $7,500 to the Tenterfield Physical Culture Club for a Workshop/Interclub Competition – August 2021 (date to be confirmed);
  • $15,000 to the Saddlers Mountain Bike Club Tenterfield for their Gravel Ride Cycling Event – May/June 2021 (to be confirmed).

 

“These events will provide a wonderful opportunity for members of the community to join with their families and have fun as well as encouraging visitors from outside our Shire to come to Tenterfield and enjoy all that our town has to offer.   The variety of the events ensures that there is something for everyone,” Mayor Petty added.
