Tingha Sports & Recreation Club is set to have its security and lighting systems beefed up after receiving $10,062 in State Government funding.
The money was secured under the NSW Crown Reserves Improvement Fund and would help with the cost of installing new security cameras around the club as well as upgrading lighting on the adjacent rugby league ground.
Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said that the Tingha Sports & Recreation Club is an important community hub, enjoyed by locals for sporting or other social and community events.
“The club is well supported and run by a small group of local volunteers who want to protect it from any anti-social and criminal behaviour,” Mr Marshall said.
“The new lights at thew footy ground will also help make this area much safer at night and discourage people congregating there when the ground is not in use.
“The lights will also aide the Westpac Rescue Helicopters, which often land at the ground in emergency situations.”
Tingha Recreation Reserve Land Manager Colleen Graham said she was grateful to receive the State Government funding and the money would be used to improve the safety and facilities for everyone.
“This is an important project for the club and one we’ve been wanting to undertake for some time,” Mrs Graham said.
“Now we have the money to proceed and make the club a much safer place for the entire community.”
