Bass Coast backs healthy lifestyles

BASS Coast Shire Council distributed $63,750 worth of grants to community groups last week.

Thirty-six recipients were invited to celebrate their success at the Kilcunda Community Hall.

Mayor Cr Jordan Crugnale said 10 sport and recreation applications were among those supported.

“Two of these projects support new activities, especially aimed at keeping young girls and women active,” she said.

“These are the Bass Valley stand up paddle boarding mums and ladies who were granted $2187 to establish stand up paddle boarding at Coronet Bay.

“The success of this group with their ‘come and try’ sessions has led them to extend their reach shire wide, with July 16 the next date on the boards.”

Cr Crugnale said the Phillip Island Football Club received $1065 to help start an Under 18s youth girls’ team.

“With the recent announcement of the eight team women’s AFL competition, it won’t be long before there is local representation at the level,” she said.

Bass Coast community grants 2016 round two is open for applications up to August 12.
