Funding boost for CWA

Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh visited the Coffs Harbour CWA Rooms this month to congratulate them on a State Government grant.

The Coffs Harbour CWA branch received $7880 under the Community Building Partnership Program for community groups.

They will use the funds for the installation of rooftop solar panels and the replacement of the old-style interior fluorescent lights with LED lighting with the aim of decreasing the ongoing costs of power at the CWA rooms.

The Coffs Harbour CWA branch was formed in 1931. It currently has 38 members and active social media presence on facebook.
