Gaming Fund win buys facelift for old Biggenden CWA building
BIGGENDEN QCWA Branch has received the welcome news its submission for the upgrade of its rooms has been approved.
The branch has received almost $25,000 through the Community Benefits Fund for painting the inside and outside of the building.
Branch vice president Julia Young said it was exciting news for members.
“It would take the branch many years to fundraise for this much needed project,” she said.
“The grant will also include the installation of fans and electrical work in the renovated kitchen.”
In other news, the branch has organised a hoy and tombola afternoon on Saturday July 8 while on Thursday August 10 a knitting and crochet competition is planned.
People wishing to participate don’t have to be QCWA members.
There are five classes in each of the knitting and crochet from a modern outfit for a 6-12 month baby to a garment for a child up to 10 years, toys, knee rug and a crocheted item made from 100g of synthetic/acrylic yarn.
Branch secretary Nancy Brady said this item remains the property of the QCWA
“It will be sold at a state conference in Brisbane being held later in the year,” she said.
