Volunteers rewarded by council

COMMUNITY groups across the region received $142,180 from South Gippsland Shire Council at the presentation of Community Grants recently.

The program supports community initiatives that enhance the quality of life, heritage, recreation and cultural opportunities in the shire.

Groups wishing to apply for funding under round two of the Community Grants have until March 31, 2016 to apply through council’s website.

The recent presentation was held in the Leongatha council chamber.
