Darren Chester the Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, and Matthew Fraser the Nationals Candidate for Richmond were at Salt Surf Club today to announce funding of $1 million to support the construction of the club’s fully functioning lifesaving facility under a re-elected Coalition Government.
Nationals candidate for Richmond Matthew Fraser said the funding promise was a welcome boost for the region and well deserved.
“To the club’s credit they have been able to raise $788,000 off the back of their hard work, sweat and tears to start what they’re calling stage one,” he said.
“This gives them the certainty that the club will now be finished. They will get a completed product, a fully functioning surf club.”
