Grants should go to the town

Sir,

I would like to comment on “funding boost for local group” in last week paper (October 28 2011).

I see that the Eastwood and District Probus club received an award. To my knowledge they do nothing in or for Eastwood and you have to be a retired business person to join.

I also think that not to give a grant for the organisations that are open to the public in our town is disgraceful.

This is rate payer money that has been awarded.

Yours sincerely

Tara Fiddyment
