Work is complete at the Barmedman Shop after the Barmedman Development Association secured $11,000 for roof repairs under the 2021 Community Building Partnership program.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke has welcomed completion of the project, with the works carried out by local business.
“The Barmedman Shop, known as ‘Arts and Crafts, Coffee and Cakes’, is a bustling community hub where locals come together to enjoy a cuppa and local produce,” Ms Cooke said.
“It is fantastic to have supported this project to ensure the shop building is well-maintained into the future, for the benefit of the entire community.”
“To have engaged local tradies for the job also keeps the money local, which is great news for our regional economy.”
President of Barmedman Development Association Anne Schubert said it is exciting to have the project finished after some early delays due to wet weather.
“The work was completed in early December and the town is forever grateful,” Ms Schubert said.
“We thank Gary and Nathan Doneley Roofing from Junee for a job well done.”
The Barmedman Progress Association is one of 23 local organisations to receive funding through the 2021 Community Building Partnership.
The program has funded more than 100 community projects across the Cootamundra electorate since 2017.
