$25,000 FOR BENDEMEER CWA HALL
The Bendemeer CWA Hall is about to see some much need upgrades thanks to a $25,000 grant through the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Fund, Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson announced today.
Mr Anderson met with the Bendemeer CWA members to discuss their plans to improve accessibility for the Henry Street facility.
“The Bendemeer CWA does a lot for our community whether it’s catering for wakes, supporting rural women and families or raising much needed funds for charities so $25,000 to assist in improving their current facility will go a long way.
“The association will be installing a ramp and widening doorways so that people with lesser mobility will be able to access the hall, as well as upgrades to bathrooms and toilets for greater accessibility.
“The historic hall has been around for a while so a much needed assessment of the building wiring will be carried out and then if funds allow we will see the installation of a reverse cycle heating and cooling unit.”
Bendemeer CWA President Cynthia Murray said the group of fifteen members is small but very active and they are looking for members to join their ranks.
“We’re not just restricted to women from Bendemeer, you can come from far and wide if you wish.
“It’s not just charity work that we do, we also try to educate local children on other countries as well as interact with our other branches and ensure that we look after each other in the community.”
Mr Anderson said local groups such as the CWA are important to our community and are worthy of our support.
“I was eager to lend my support to the CWA’s application for funding and I urge the community to continue to support the CWA through their many fundraising efforts as well,” Mr Anderson concluded.
