Abernethy's My Community Project 

Results to be announced this month

This is an image (right) of the project AHLA has nominated to build in our local park using NSW Government's "My Community Project" funds. In fact we are requesting funding for the sandstone and softfall and one of the two exercise stations because we want to spend our own money on the other. This is where the old 'bike bridge' project funds are going.

Coming Up : 

Committee Meeting
