Catherine King has today welcomed the news that Ballan Scouts will receive a $550,000 grant for the construction of the Ballan Scout and Community Centre (BSACC).
This $1.1 million project will construct a multi-purpose Scout and Community Activity Centre to be used as a meeting and activities space for this important community group.
“I am delighted to see the Ballan Scouts receive this support, Ms King said.
“The last two years have been incredibly difficult for community groups like the scouts, but everyone involved has come up with innovative ways to teach these kids new skills and keep them engaged with the broader community.
“With hopes Moorabool will soon be coming out of lockdown and vaccination numbers climbing, this is another ray of hope for a better year next year.
“Now it is up to the Government to get the money out the door quickly so the scouts can get to work on their new centre!”
