The Shire of Narrogin will give out $16,000 worth of grants to several local organisations as part of a community chest funding initiative.

This year, eligible incorporated not-for-profit organisations were invited to apply for up to $2500 for supported projects, programs or events which would benefit the general Narrogin community.

Seven out of nine applications were approved by the Shire at a council meeting last Wednesday.

Narrogin Croquet Club is set to receive $2500 to upgrade the clubroom kitchen and interior of the original clubhouse, and the Narrogin Restoration Group is set to receive the same amount to set up a Pioneers Farm Kitch-en.

A series of scooter workshops at the Narrogin Skatepark was also put forward by the Moorditj Youth Foundation Aboriginal Corporation and has been supported by the council with a $2500 contribution.

Highbury District Community Council’s request for the same amount was also approved to install a reticulation system in Wilbur Park.

Another $2500 is set to go towards an electronic target system for the use of Narrogin Sporting Shooters Club members at the firing range.

Narrogin and Districts Little Athletics Centre will also receive $1000 from the Shire, to deliver coaching clinics to youths aged eight to 17.

Narrogin Gliding Club’s request for $2500 towards a Fly-In Day event was approved, but as one-off seed funding support from the Shire’s Festivals and Events.

The Shire rejected the application of Accessibility WA to install a reverse cyle air-conditioner due to the property being privately owned and Narrogin Primary School’s application for toilet refurbishment, due to the property being a State Government asset.
