Member for Bathurst Paul Toole has visited the Kandos Museum to make an important announcement regarding the future of the local tourist attraction.
Expansion plans for the facility are now on the cards thanks to funding from the NSW Government.
A Community Building Partnership (CBP) grant of $19,995 will allow two, 40 foot containers to be installed, fitted out, air conditioned and painted to create more space in the new upstairs café and viewing area.
“The two containers will be placed back-to-back behind the container already added to the complex,” Mr Toole said.
“Holes can then be cut on the internal walls and windows added so as to create a more open and workable space.
“It’s all part of the going efforts by Buzz Sanderson and his team of dedicated volunteers to improve the facilities at the Kandos Museum.”
The Kandos Museum is a community based, not for profit organisation dedicated to the preservation and celebration of the industrial, social, economic and political history of Kandos – a unique 20th Century town.
The Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 16,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.
In 2022, there is $400,000 to allocate in each electorate. Applications for the 2022 Program open in early 2022.
