Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : October 15 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, October 16, 2008 17 NEWS BRIEFLY Purler of an idea IF YOU enjoy knitting and would like to help people in need, why not join the Wrap with Love knitting group at Concord Library. This dedicated group of knitters meet every Wednesday afternoon at 3pm to knit and chat. Wraps are made from the knitted squares, which are then sent to communities in need. Ten wraps have been donated to the Wrap with Love cause over the past six weeks. Knitters can also drop off completed squares at the library during opening hours. Phone 9911 6210. Help for good sports INNER West groups are being urged to apply for grants to fund local sport and recreation facilities. ''Grants of up to $30,000 are available to local government authorities and incorporated not-for-profit organisations for use on local sporting or recreational projects,'' Drummoyne State Labor MP Angela D'Amore said. ''These grants fund up to half the cost of development of facilities like netball courts, football fields or bowling lawns.'' Application forms are available from the NSW Sport and Recreation website at www.dsr.nsw.gov.au or by calling 131 302. Applications close on November 14.
