Weethalle Country Club has been successful in securing funding of $156,213 to install a new kitchen through Round Five of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said she was delighted to see this project successful for the benefit of members and guests of the Weethalle Country Club.
“I am very proud to have supported the Weethalle Country Club in their efforts to modernise and increase the existing kitchen space,” Ms Cooke said.
“These improvements will also include new cabinetry combined with the increased floor space will give the club kitchen a new lease of life.”
“While the previous kitchen has served the community and visitors to the club well, the small space needed to be expanded to accommodate as more people come through the doors.”
“With local trades from West Wyalong engaged to undertake the work means this project will also be a welcome boost for the local economy.”
Weethalle Country Club Treasurer Leanne Hanlon said it is very exciting news for their small but welcoming community club.
“The upgrades to the Kitchen will allow for more space to move around, which in turn will make it safer and reduce the risk of injuries such as burns,” Ms Hanlon said.
Since 2017, the Stronger Country Communities Fund has invested over $5.2 million for 29 projects across Bland Shire as part of the NSW Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund.
