Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta MP recently congratulated Wynnum Croquet Club on receiving a Stronger Communities Grant from the Federal Government to replace damaged infrastructure.
Mr Vasta attended the Wynnum Croquet Club to announce the news to members and see firsthand how the grant will benefit the club.
“The Wynnum Croquet Club has a strong history on the bayside and is one of the oldest clubs in the area. It’s been wonderful to support them with federal funding to allow the club to replace a broken gate which has been damaged by age and weather,” Mr Vasta said.
“The new upgrade will provide increased safety and security at the club.”
The Wynnum Croquet Club provides a place for local seniors to connect and a supportive environment to share a love of this age-old sport.
“With the challenges of the last few years, social isolation has proven to be a huge impact on our community, especially seniors who don’t necessarily have the technological skills or connections of the younger generations.
“That is why it is so important to support places like the Wynnum Croquet Club, so they can continue providing a safe and welcoming environment for our seniors to connect with friends and stay active later in life.”
Mr Vasta has been working alongside the Wynnum Croquet Club for many years and will continues is strong support of the club.
