The installation of competition level lighting and drainage will soon be delivered at the Marulan Soccer Fields thanks to Round Five of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman made the announcement of funding the $423,852 project at the Australia Day event in Marulan.

“High quality LED lighting and a dry and safe playing surface will reduce the need to play at other venues for locals and contribute to the vibrancy and amenity of Marulan as a community,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

Goulburn Mulwaree Council Mayor Peter Walker welcomed the funding.

“The installation of competition level lights and drainage will increase the recreation and competition opportunities for Marulan Football Club – one of the oldest in the Southern Tablelands Football Association”, Clr Walker said

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said in the past five years the Stronger Country Communities Fund had delivered more than 2000 grassroots projects, benefitting every Local Government Area in regional NSW.

“We all know how important it is for communities to have great places to come together to build social connections and boost their wellbeing,” Mr Toole said. 

“It’s the little things that make a big difference to the way we all work, live, play and do business, and the NSW Liberals and Nationals in Government are delivering the projects that make a difference to everyday life right across regional NSW.”

Round Five of the Stronger Country Communities Fund is supporting local community and sporting infrastructure projects, street beautification, public programs and events that display the best of local character and community spirit.

The Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund, designed to support growing regional centres, activate local economies and improve services and community infrastructure in the regions.
