Some good news on the heritage front!
Mid Western Regional Council has received significant funding for a major project titled “Snapshot of our Heritage”. Peter Monaghan and Virginia Hollister are both volunteer members on Council’s Heritage Committee and this is news just to hand.
The grant will provide funding to:
(1) photographically document all 400+ heritage listed buildings in the council area.
(2) create ‘statements of significance’ for the same 400+ buildings
(3) provide an opportunity for owners and interested members of the public to:
a. share any photographs, further information, stories and history about these buildings and
b. suggest other buildings and sites that should be considered for listing in the future.
(4) create a website to hold and share the above information.
This is a great opportunity for our heritage to be better documented!!!
