The NSW Government are about to spend more than $300,000 of public funds for public toilets and showers in Glenreagh, Grafton and Evans Head, Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis announced at the Glenreagh Recreation Ground last Wednesday.

“One of the few upsides of the pandemic is that governments everywhere are spending more on hygiene and public facilities and these COVID-19 Recovery Support Programs do just that here at Glenreagh and also at the Grafton Showground and Dirawong Nature Reserve on the Richmond Valley coast,” Mr Gulaptis said.

“The Glenreagh Public Recreation Reserve Land Manager has won $118, 637 for better-than-new loos and shower facilities, while Clarence Pastoral & Agricultural Society has secured $68,200 to upgrade the shower and toilet block at the Grafton Showground and the Dirawong Reserve Land Manager gets $113,424 for a brand new pair of toilets for bushwalkers and nature lovers.”
