Cootamundra Scouts hosted CGRC mayor Cr Abb McAlister on Wednesday night following the completion of a $42,000 project funded by the state government.
A group of scouts led Cr McAlister around the hall to show him the new improvements which include 3 new split system reverse cycle air conditioning units, a new stove in the kitchen area and the floor in the main hall that has been sanded and resurfaced.
Whilst this work was visual, there was also work done to repair the roof, water damaged ceiling panels and upgrades to the electrical circuitry.
The group were awarded a $42,175.00 grant from the NSW State Government initiative Stronger Communities Fund.
Cr McAlister was impressed, and congratulated scout leaders on their work.
"Halls like this are very important to our communities, and the Scout movement provides a valuable outlet for our youngsters, these kids are our future and future leaders, providing them with a space that allows them the opportunities to interact with each other, learn skills and build their confidence," Cr McAlister said.
Cr McAlister presented the local scouts and leaders with a plaque in recognition of the completed work
"I'm really pleased to present this plaque in recognition of the work that has been done to improve the Cootamundra Scout hall.”
