The entire community of Junee will benefit from upgrades to the Junee Senior Citizen’s Hall thanks to a cash boost of $60,783 through the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the funding would help Junee Seniors Citizen’s Club continue its invaluable work in supporting our local active senior’s population.
“I am delighted the hall will receive an upgrade to improve the amenities and security for its patrons and those who hire the venue,” Ms Cooke said.
“This much-needed cash injection helps our regional groups do what they do best in serving their local communities.”
“It is hoped the funding will ignite community spirit and boost participation across the areas of sport and recreation, the arts and cultural activities.”
The works on Junee Citizen’s Hall will include the replacement of the existing toilets with a single unisex, accessible toilet and security upgrades with the installation of security grills on windows and CCTV.
There will also be a large television and internet connection installed to modernise the equipment and technology, allowing seniors to host various presentations, information sessions and small movie events.
Junee Seniors Citizens Club Treasurer, Ms Barbara Guthrie said the hall is used by a number of groups and these improvements are needed to ensure that it is fully functional for all people.
“We are delighted to know that people with walkers and wheelchairs will now have access to the toilets along with some technology to help us move into the 21st century,” Ms Guthrie said.
