Security Lighting for Coldstream JFC

Margaret Lewis Reserve in Coldstream will receive new security lighting to provide improved safety for junior footballers at the Coldstream Junior Football Club, their families and school teachers.

The Turnbull Government will contribute $16,500 from the Turnbull Government’s Stronger Communities Grants programme and in partnership with funding of $23,500 from Yarra Ranges Council.

Mr Smith said “I believe it is important to support our local youth to participate in sport.”

“These lights will make a welcome addition to the sporting facilities here at Margaret Lewis Reserve and allow for people to feel safe and secure at night.”

“It is fantastic to see this project delivered as part of my local plan to further strengthen our community and local economy.”

The Stronger Communities Grants programme provides funding for small-scale local infrastructure projects, ranging from $5,000 to $20,000, which are matched dollar for dollar.
