On Thursday last week Julie Collins, member for Dennison, came to have a look at the works that have recently been done as part of grant funding received through a 'Stronger Communities' grant.  This grant allowed us to replace an old section of roof on the upper workshop.  It also funded materials for the reorganisation of the tool storage area under the Mezzanine, instalation of a door between the two bottom workshops and will see external painting of the bottom workshop soon, once it warms up a little.  

Thanks so much for this community support Julie.
