One per cent of council grants for Peninsula community

Less than one per cent of almost $600,000 in community grants awarded by Central Coast Council last week will go to activities run by and for the Peninsula community.

The Peninsula represents more than 10 per cent of the region's population.

A grant of $3250, or 0.6 per cent of the $580,660 grants total, was awarded to The Bays Community Group to "part fund" its annual art show and exhibition at The Bays Hall.

The council staff recommendation for the grant stated: "Central Coast artists are invited to exhibit their works and residents have the chance to meet the exhibitor and purchase the works.

It stated the show had a "strong project concept with demonstrated community benefit".

Another four grants involve activities that are expected to be available on the Peninsula, but are not primarily run for the Peninsula community.

These include the Words on the Waves writers' festival, the Coastal Twist festival, Permaculture Central Coast's Edible Garden Trail and the Coastal Ultra 50 running event staged by Single Track Events Pty Ltd.

All appear to be primarily paid ticketed activities supporting sectional interests, with the exception of the Coastal Twist festival which has a large proportion of free activities.

The Words on the Waves festival is described as offering "offers author panels, literacy conversations, book signings and writer's workshops" and was awarded $19,970.

Naughty Noodle Fun Haus was awarded $20,000 for its Coastal Twist LGBTQIA Arts and Culture Festival, which "brings 12 events across seven days for all ages sharing the vision for a more visibly inclusive, social and equitable Central Coast".

Permaculture Central Coast was award $14,325 for its Central Coast Edible Garden Trail described as "an annual selfguided event across the Central Coast, showcasing productive, diverse edible gardens".

Woy Woy Community Garden is understood to be included in the Trail.

"Trail visitors will be educated on how to grow food at home, learning about natural growing systems that create abundance and biodiversity while contributing to the responsible stewardship of the land."

SingleTrack Events Pty Ltd was awarded $10,000 for its Coastal Ultra 50, "a 50km trail run that navigates the trails, beaches and National Park, starting in Terrigal and finishing in Patonga".

"The running event is inclusive for runners of all ages."

Further details of the activities were not given in the Council agenda.
