Helping to conserve and share local heritage has been bought one step closer for locals in Kyogle with an $82,200 grant from NSW Government’s Heritage Near Me Local Strategic Project funding.
The grant will go to the Kyogle & District Historical Society for the Kyogle History Museum to assist the Society work with a museum specialist to review collections, develop interpretation and display opening and archiving solution as it moves into its new Museum.
‘Helping communities to conserve and share their local heritage is a key feature of the Heritage Near Me Local Heritage Strategic Projects funding stream,’ said Member for Lismore, Thomas George MP
‘The Members of the Kyogle and District Historical Society express sincere thanks to the NSW Government for the grant. As the building in Bloore Street, nears completion, Members look forward to welcoming the services of a Professional Museum Specialist to assist in the transition and internal lay-out of the new premises,’ said Project Chair and Society Treasurer, Tom Fitzgerald.
