Recently, Council approved Community Support Grants for 12 community organisations across the Shire.

Shire President Kerry White congratulated the recipients and recognised the importance of community support.

“This funding allows clubs to host or travel to regional and state sporting events or championships, purchase new equipment, and partake in professional sports or community development such as clinics, courses and seminars,” she said.

Those who were successful include:

  • Onslow School P&C Association
  • Pannawonica Darts Club
