A NEW CAFE AND COMMUNITY HUB!
Coming to Girgarre Soon
Work on a brand new, state-of-the-art Café
and Community Hub (pictured left), to be situated on the Winter Road Green Thumbs Nursery site, will begin shortly thanks to a generous $814,000 grant, courtesy of the Federal Government’s Murray Darling Basin Economic Program. The Honourable Damian Drum, Member for Nicholls, delivered the good news to an enthusiastic on site on Thursday 8 July.
“The Federal government was well aware of the impact on small communities caused by reforms to the Murray Darling Basin Water Plan”, Mr. Drum said. “The loss of water from the region has come at a great cost to many, limiting their ability to maintain wealth. The Government’s Economic Grant program is designed to give communities like Girgarre, the opportunity to develop enterprises and programs that will provide diversity and bring wealth back to their local community. It recognises that communities know how best to tackle the challenges they face, and what kinds of economic activity would best support them.”
"You have bitten off a large project”, he went on to say, “It is one of the better projects I’ve seen, it shows what can happen when you dream big. The commitment of your community is remarkable. These funds are to say thank you for your vision and hard work, but it represents only a fraction of the many in-kind hours put in by the local volunteers. It is an honour to contribute.”
