Nundle Courthouse Museum to get $23,620 upgrade
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has announced a grant of $23,620 for the Nundle Courthouse Museum.
Mr Anderson said the Nundle Courthouse Museum received the grant through the Community Building Partnership Program.
“The Program is one of the most popular of its kind and I am delighted that the Nundle Courthouse Museum is one of the worthy recipients,” Mr Anderson said.
“There was a high level of interest from the community and there was strong competition for the available funds and I would like to congratulate the Nundle and District Lions Club on behalf of the Nundle Courthouse Museum who were successful.
Nundle and District Lions Club Secretary Mrs Susan Trist said the grant will allow the club to undertake internal repairs to the building.
“We will be able to redecorate the walls and ceiling of the main part of the building, as well as install electric blinds.
“The electric blinds will make the interior a lot brighter but will ultimately provide protection for the artefacts when the museum is not in use,” Mrs Trist said.
Mr Anderson said the Nundle Courthouse Museum houses a wide range historical items, from miming artefacts to old photos from around the Nundle area.
“It was a pleasure to visit the Courthouse Museum today and I look forward to seeing the project get underway soon,” Mr Anderson said.
