Visitors to Glenbrook Rotary Markets will soon enjoy a cooler experience after the service club was awarded $16,335 for shade sails.
Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres joined Lower BLue Mountains Rotary Club members and school staff to announce the grant recently.
Mr Ayres said the funding will go towards shade sails at the old Glenbrook Public School offering the many users of the school grounds some much needed relief from the harsh sun.
“It is my pleasure to support Rotary with this grant which I know will benefit locals and visitors alike,” he said.
“Funding through the grants program aims to create more vibrant and inclusive communities and deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.”
Past Rotary club president Pamela Noal said she shared the club’s “immense appreciation in receiving this grant that will create an area of shade for multiple users of site including after school care and people who visit on many occasions through each month of our community calendar of events”.
“Lower Blue Mountains Rotary is very grateful for the ongoing support we receive from Stuart Ayres and we express our sincere thanks to him and his office staff.”
