We all know our venerable hall, erected in 1931, is in need of a bit of TLC. It gets heavy use and has provided solid service for many years. But better toilets, repairs and upgrades to the kitchen and basement and a host of other minor capital works are needed.
A working group of the Committee has drafted a programme of activities that will need in the order of $80,000 to achieve.
Wow – that’s a lot!! Where is that money going to come from?
Well, we are stoked to announce that we have just received a $10,000 grant from the Wellington RSA towards this initiative. This fantastic donation adds to the c. $20,000 the Group accumulated already through recent years of excellent fundraising.
The Committee is applying for some additional major grants in the coming 2 months – we’ll keep you posted.
