Council has put aside $50,000 from its 2002/03 budget for the program. The scheme funds small scale building projects throughout the Shire.

"Last year was the first year of the scheme, and a number of community groups benefited," said Cr John Gains, Mayor of Bass Coast Shire Council.

The Inverloch/Kongwak Combined Football/Netball Club and the Phillip Island Netball club each received $5,000 to re-surface their netball courts.

The Rhyll Hall & Park Committee constructed a wind-break around their BBQís with $1,320 from the scheme. The Dalyston Hall Committee received $5,000 to seal their carpark.

The Phillip Island Scout Group received funding of $4,900 to construct a storage area. The Bass Coast Artists Society will be able to improve drainage and the carpark area of the Goods Shed in Wonthaggi with funding of $2,000.

The San Remo Foreshore Committee of Management was given $5,000 to replace cisterns and connect their toilet block to sewer. The Phillip Island Community & Learning Centre received $5,000 for the completion of disabled access, a classroom and toilets.

The Sunset Strip Progress Association used $5,000 from the fund for levelling, top dressing and seeding of a local park. The Cape Paterson Hall Committee received $2,500 to renew the Hallís timber decking.

"The achievements and diversity of projects last year using funding from this scheme was fantastic," said Cr John Gains.

If your community group would like to apply for funding from the Minor Capital Works Scheme, please contact Council on 5671 2211 or 5951 3311. Details of the scheme are also available on Councilís website at
