I congratulate the local clubs and organisations that received funding in the 2020 Summer Hill Community Building Partnership grants. The pandemic has placed an incredible strain on inner west community groups and clubs, many of whom have been unable to engage with volunteers or undertake fundraising. This funding will go a long way towards helping them out. Kids at The Infants' Home in Ashfield will enjoy a newly upgraded play space, while Australia's next basketball or netball star will get their start on the new rings at Ferncourt Public School. The Western Suburbs Junior AFL team has a new PA system, while new soundproofing at the Flight Path Theatre means that actors will not have to compete with aeroplanes roaring overhead.
St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church will refurbish one of its classrooms, St John Ambulance will purchase a new stretcher bed and the Haberfield Association will fence the heritage sunken garden at the beautiful Yasmar estate. I also congratulate Yeo Park Infants School, 3Bridges, Dulwich Hill Public School, Marrickville District Lawn Tennis Club, Marrickville West Primary School, the River Canoe Club, the Exodus Foundation, Petersham Public School and Marrickville Occasional Child Care, which were successful in this year's grants. I thank everyone who applied and the thousands of local residents who completed my grant survey and had their say.
