Construction Starts At North Esk Rowing Club

Construction Starts At North Esk Rowing Club - Jim Cox, MHA - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

The North Esk Rowing Club?s new clubrooms project has been helped with a State Government grant.

Minister for Sport and Recreation Jim Cox today presented North Esk Rowing Club President Kerry Dawkins with a cheque for $150,000 to assist with the construction of new club premises.

?I?m delighted to present the club with $150,000 under Sport and Recreation Tasmania?s 2005-06 Facilities Grant Program,? Minister Cox said today.

?The money will go towards bulding a new, bigger clubhouse, which will also cater for people with disabilities.

?The North Esk Rowing Club is a very successful Northern Tasmanian Sporting Organisation, having won the State Pennant and Hydro Cup in the 2004-2005 season, when its rowers competed successfully at the National Championships.

?The Club has 155 members across all age categories, and the improved club facilities should help attract new members,? Mr Cox said.

Mr Cox said that the Facilities Grant Program provides financial assistance to eligible organisations to develop quality facilities that meet the sport and recreation needs of the community.

?The Facilities Grant Program will distribute in excess of $1.1 million to 58 projects throughout the State during 2005-06.

?The Facilities Grant Program provides grants of up to $200,000 for new and existing facility developments, with funds made available through the Community Support Levy.

?The State Government is committed to the development of a strong and vibrant sport and recreation industry that is capable of supporting Tasmania?s physical activity needs now and well into the future,? Mr Cox said.
