The recently-refurbished Ellwood's Hall at Stockinbingal has been further improved with a successful application for an ARTC/Inland Rail grant.
The Hall committee has received funding allowing it to buy six more trestle tables, a whiteboard, some room dividers and two "open" signs.
These will make the hall an even more attractive proposition when being considered for events such workshops, community meetings, markets and the model train weekend.
Donations from the "Basham boys" and Sandra Fallon, as well as proceeds from the model train weekend, have allowed the Hall to get a new PA system for professional events. The committee is grateful to Tony Nichols for his research and hard work in sourcing this.
The committee has also applied for a grant through round three of the Stronger Country Communities Fund to cover a new amenities block and kitchen renovations.
President Rosalie Dale said that if successful, the work would really make the Hall a force to be reckoned with when it comes to events.
"We're also looking to improve our outdoor lighting both on the lawn side as well as at the front of the hall," Ms Dale said.
The hall is available for private bookings by calling 0431 207 716.
Stockinbingal village has had a facelift with 16 new story boards installed by Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council.
The council has swapped the old story boards which were faded and sun damaged with new boards that are easier to read and enhance the history walks around the village.
Each board faces a building and gives a brief history.
