No doubt, you will have all noticed the new lights on field 2 are up and running.
PBFC are very fortunate to have received a grant of $58,750.00 under the NSW Community Building Partnership to assist with the costs associated with the installation of the sports field lighting. Along with PBFC’s contribution of $20,000, we must also acknowledge the Tweed Shire Council for covering the balance of costs to enable the project to be fully completed which also included the upgrade to the electrical distribution board.
The NSW Community Building Partnership offers grants to support projects that encourage community participation. Everyone here at PBFC is very grateful to the NSW CBP for selecting our club as a recipient after a tough application process. Acknowledgement must also go to Mr Geoff Provest for recognising the need for such a project at our club.
Acknowledgement and thanks also goes to the Tweed Shire Council (in particular Stewart Brawley, Peter Ganser and David Hannah) for their assistance in meeting the program’s deadlines and also to all the tradespersons involved throughout the project.
Over recent years PBFC’s membership has doubled in size. Having two lit playing fields will allow for more flexible training schedules and will allow PBFC to host more evening games. It will also allow for the entry of more teams in PBFC’s 6-aside competition.
PBFC would like to extend our thanks to the Community Building Partnership for making this project possible.
We would also like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Kayleen who has worked tirelessly applying for this grant & continuing to work on it over a very long period of time. Without volunteers like Kayleen this would never have come to fruition and we can’t thank her enough!!!
