Col­binab­bin will be join­ing silo art trail

Campaspe News - - NEWS -

THERE will be one more stop on the silo art trail thanks to a group of Col­binab­bin lo­cals and the Vic­to­rian gov­ern­ment’s fund­ing scheme Pick My Project.

The part­ner­ship be­tween the Col­binab­bin Coun­try Ho­tel and Vic Feeds saw com­mit­ted com­mu­nity mem­bers ap­ply for fund­ing through the fund­ing ini­tia­tive.

And the gov­ern­ment has now in­jected $112,500 into the project.

In­stru­men­tal in or­gan­is­ing the fund­ing was Sadie Vale, who is very ex­cited her town will have silo art.

‘‘Ev­ery­one I’ve spo­ken to around town is so happy,’’ Sadie said.

‘‘I think this could make a real im­pact on the town and the sur­round­ing ar­eas.

‘‘We will now be the clos­est silo to Mel­bourne and with winer­ies close by, it will be a great link to bring tourists to the area.

‘‘Now we have the dol­lars, we will sit down, plan, and en­gage with the com­mu­nity. We re­ally want the com­mu­nity to be in­volved — they have been in­volved with the project every step of the way so far.

‘‘We re­ally want to tell a story with our si­los so we will be seek­ing out ideas and sug­ges­tions from ev­ery­one.’’

Mary-Anne Mor­gan, Sadie Vale and Carolyn Meyer are team­ing up to bring tourists to Col­binab­bin.
