Four Two Wells based community projects are the most recent recipients of funding via the Two Wells Community Fund (TWCF).
The fund – a joint initiative between Adelaide Plains Council and the Hickinbotham Group – allocated a little over $12,500 to projects aimed at improving services, community involvement and participation, and small construction in the Two Wells township.
The Two Wells Craft Shop received a grant of $2,000 to replace their current galvanised gate with a new wrought iron gate.
The gate will allow residents and visitors to view the currently hidden community garden at the rear of the shop.
The Two Wells District Tennis Club was allocated $5,000 to assist with purchasing a new shed to store equipment on site, as well as being a meeting point for members, visiting teams and the public.
The Two Wells Football and Netball Sporting Club was awarded $3,216 to purchase new sporting equipment, while the Two Wells RSL received $2500 to fit galvanised sheeting over their existing pergola.
Club representatives received their cheques from MLC John Dawkins at a special presentation on Tuesday December 3, with Hickinbotham’s Ruth Vagnarelli also in attendance.
“The community fund committee represents the strong partnership between council, state government and Hickinbotham,” Ms Vagnarelli said.
“It is fantastic to assist with such worthwhile projects that will benefit the town.”
Adelaide Plains Council general manager development and community, Rob Veitch, said the results of funding from the fund’s first round earlier in the year could already be seen.
“Certainly our community has already benefited with projects awarded money from the community fund’s first round, namely the purchase of a shade-sail fitted over tables at the Two Wells Playground and dual flush toilets being installed at the Two Wells Community Centre,” he said.
The third round of the TWCF will open on Monday, March 2 and close on Friday, March 27, 2020.
