CWA receives $200 flagpole grant
The Woy Woy branch of the Country Women's Association has received a $200 grant to fund repairs of their flagpole.
The grant was delivered to the branch after State Liberal MLC Mr Taylor Martin learned the branch's flagpole was damaged after a recent theft.
Mr Martin said that when he heard about the damage that was caused he contacted Minister for Women Ms Tanya Davies to see what the NSW Government could do to help.
"The Country Women's Association are always there to help others in the community in need," he said.
"It would be a shame if the branch had to divert money away from the vital work they do in order to fund the repairs," Mr Martin said.
"I thank Minister Davies for responding so quickly and making the funding available to the branch."
Mr Martin said that whoever stole the flags cut the rope and took the rigging with them.
The $200 grant will fund new steel rigging on both flag poles as well as a roof mounted spotlight for security.
"I look forward to the CWA being able to have their flags flying again soon," Mr Martin said.
