The Brunswick Valley Historical Society’s museum buildings in Mullumbimby are set to be spruced up after a $59,075 NSW government grant was announced last Friday.
The society’s Susan Tsicalas says the grant will allow the society to insulate and line the shed, as well as paint it and the museum externally.
‘This will make the shed a much more friendly place to visit and work in. As we will have to remove everything to insulate and line it, it will allow us to make new and improved displays as well as protect the artefacts in that building. We are pretty excited that we will be able to do that thanks to the grant.’
She adds, ‘It will also help to improve the longevity of the artefacts stored and displayed within. The grant also includes the museum and shed painted externally with the addition of a mural on the shed.’
The funding was from the NSW government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund and was presented by Ben Franklin MLC.
