Maranoa MP: Boosting Warwick’s sports infrastructure  

November 12, 2019

 Two Warwick football clubs will soon be showing new facilities – with $16,545 through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme – Maranoa MP David Littleproud announced today.

“The Redbacks AFC carpark will be upgraded and the Warwick Rugby Union Club will use funds to extend the roof of their clubhouse,” Mr Littleproud said.

“Improving the infrastructure of our sports clubs means that they are made more accessible to users and supporters and we can take pride in what services and facilities Warwick offers.

“I’m a firm believer in bringing people together and improving community services across rural and regional areas in Maranoa because it has a positive flow-on effect on our quality of life and how we support each other and get involved in the community.

“Our bush communities are the heart of this country and I want to make sure that small capital projects are funded and local clubs and organisations get exactly what they need.”

The Warwick Redbacks AFC received $10,000 for carpark upgrades and the Warwick and District Rugby Union Club received $6545 for clubhouse extensions.

Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme has seen $150,000 in Federal Government funding made available to Maranoa community groups.

Project grants range from $2500 to $20,000 to help bolster rural communities.
