$12,000 FACELIFT FOR GUNNEDAH CWA ROOMS
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson announced $12,000 for renovations to Gunnedah’s CWA Branch rooms today.
Mr Anderson said the funds from the Community Building Partnership Program will deliver much-needed improvements to the Branch rooms in Conadilly Street.
“This grant will fund a bathroom renovation including removal of asbestos materials, wall and floor tiling and painting.
“The rooms were opened in 1963 so the installation of a new cistern, hand basin and hand rails will be well appreciated.
“This is fantastic news for an organisation that started in Gunnedah in 1922, the same year the CWA began in NSW.
“This grassroots funding will directly help the members be more comfortable in their ageing Branch rooms.
“I’m always trying to think of ways I can assist community groups right across the region and the Community Building Partnership Program has been a terrific way to provide funding for important work.
“I know that 15 community groups across the Electorate will be sharing $330,000 from the latest round of the Program and this will make an awesome contribution in towns across the region,” Mr Anderson concluded.
Gunnedah Branch Secretary Elaine Kennedy said the 27 members of the Association were delighted to receive the funding to update the bathroom facilities of the room.
“We’re so fortunate to receive this funding and we’re delighted to have Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson pay us a visit to tell us all about the funding,” Mrs Kennedy said.
The Community Building Partnership program has funded some 13,800 community projects since it commenced nearly a decade ago.
