Member for Albury, Greg Aplin MP will officially open the new Tumbarumba Pump Track on Monday 10 December at the Tumbarumba Creekscape precinct.
Snowy Valleys Council’s Mayor Cr James Hayes will join Mr Aplin, Hyne Community Trust representative Dale McLachlan and members of Cycle Tumbarumba to officially open the new state-of-the-art pump track.
Snowy Valleys Council secured $149,500 in funding through round one of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund (SCCF) for the project.
Mr Aplin said the SCCF fund was developed to deliver crucial local infrastructure to improve the quality of life for people living in regional NSW.
“Facilities like this pump track are just another example of how we are helping to sustain the social bonds at the heart of strong regional communities,” Mr Aplin said.
Fifty thousand dollars was also raised by the local Cycle Tumbarumba group who made a successful application for a Hyne Tumbarumba Community Trust Grant.
“Tumbarumba has a new and exciting recreational amenity that residents and visitors can enjoy, free of charge thanks to the major funding from the NSW Government and the dedication of Cycle Tumbarumba,” Mayor James Hayes said.
“This project is a real testament to what can be achieved when residents and Council come together with a common vision and goal.”
The pump track accommodates all skill levels riding bikes, scooters, skateboards and skates and offers a fantastic opportunity for fun and exercise.
Cycle Tumbarumba will hold an informal community ‘first-ride’ afternoon following the official opening, with Rotary providing a free bbq for all to enjoy.
The NSW Government, through its Stronger Country Communities Fund is investing in infrastructure projects in regional NSW communities to improve the lives of residents and enhance the attractiveness of these areas as vibrant places to live and work.
The Tumbarumba Pump Track will be officially opened on Monday 10th December at 4pm, community members and media are invited to attend.
