Six groups receive Community Building funding

Six Peninsula groups have received a total of more than $155,000 in funding from the Community Building Partnership Program, Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch has announced.

The Woy Woy South P and C Association received $24,000 for a revamp of outdoor areas.

The Umina Beach Public School P and C Assoc was awarded $22,000 for outdoor lighting.

Naughty Noodle Fun Haus Inc received $36,863 for "A Happier, Healthier and More Inclusive Central Coast".

Central Coast Outrigger Canoe Club Inc was allocated $29,500 for an Ultra-Light OC6 Canoe.

The Southern and Ettalong United Football Club Inc received $35,523 to install a disabled toilet.

Ocean Beach Surf Life Saving Club Inc was allocated $7678 to replace roller doors.

Ms Tesch said: "The funding will be used to replace two damaged roller doors.

"The funding ensures that the surf club can focus on keeping our lifeguards and beachgoers safe.

"The work the surf club does is important.

"Ensuring the club is safe and welcoming is pivotal to allowing the club to focus on safety."

Club president Mr Dean Slattery said the funding would ensure the club can invest in training and safety.

"The current roller doors are chain operated and are faulty.

"Without this investment, funding would have been taken away from training and safety equipment."

Ms Tesch said arts and entertainment venue Naughty Noodle Fun Haus received almost $37,000 for upgrades.

She said the organisation was born in 2018 as an artist-led arts and culture organisation fostering creativity across the artist and audience communities.

She said the funding would allow the organisation to continue doing the amazing work they already do.

"Naughty Noodle do excellent work across the Coast, creating a happier, healthier and more welcoming Central Coast.

"These funds will help maximise positive community impacts and effects across the key areas of inclusion, health and wellbeing, cultural development, education, and creativity."

Naughty Noodle Fun Haus creative director Ms Glitta Supernova said: "This grant is so very special for our organisation.

"It's time for our region to be allowed to shine and for that we need spaces to do so.

"Locals, visitors and volunteers are all winners today."
