Help is at hand to repair the leaky roof of the Corryong Memorial Hall.
Independent Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan, congratulated the Towong Shire Council on receiving $18,125 for the Corryong Memorial Hall Roofing Upgrade Project.
“The Committee of Management, who are the main partner in this project have been seeking support funding since the roof started leaking three to four years ago causing flow-on damage inside the hall,” she said.
“I met with them in April to see the problem first-hand and am pleased to announce that this funding, along with Towong Shire support and community fundraising has yielded a great result.”
Corryong and District Memorial Public Hall Inc provided $30,000 for the project while Towong Shire Council provided $24,409. The total cost of the project is $72,534.
“The efforts of committee of management president Austin Nicholas, secretary Ilma Clarke and treasurer Sheril Wilson must also be recognised,” Ms McGowan said.
“There is still a lot of work to do on the site, but this is a great step in the right direction.
“Following on from this success, I’m looking forward to working with the community of Corryong on more projects in the town.”
This funding was delivered under Round Two of the Federal Government Stronger Communities Programme (SCP).
