From the seemingly bottomless pre-election coffers, yet another community asset will benefit from federal funding.
Yesterday local MP Justine Elliot announced that the Ewingsdale Community Association will receive $4,225 in federal funding to go towards facility upgrades at the Ewingsdale Hall.
The Ewingsdale Hall is a landmark building in the region and a significant facility for the small community. It was built in 1908 and is one of the most historic buildings in the Byron Bay area.
‘I congratulate the Ewingsdale Community Association on this wonderful project,’ said Justine. ‘They will contribute to the federal funding of $4,225 bringing the total value of the project to $8,450.’
Mrs Elliot said the Ewingsdale Hall is a wonderful venue for local community groups and organisations. ‘This funding will assist with repairs and upgrades of the building,’ she said.
The funding will go towards repairing the floor, fencing and installing outside lighting.
‘Our local Stronger Communities Program delivers funding across the Richmond electorate for small capital grants supporting projects that will contribute to the vibrancy and viability of our region’, said Mrs Elliot.
