Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE Woodgate and Dis­trict Res­i­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion is in cel­e­bra­tion mode fol­low­ing the com­ple­tion of their long-awaited brand new Woodgate Com­mu­nity Hall kitchen.

The newly ren­o­vated com­mer­cial kitchen, which re­places a small out­dated do­mes­tic kitchen at the com­mu­nity hall, fea­tures a deep fryer, big stove, a bain-marie, sev­eral fridges and a com­mer­cial dish­washer.

To cel­e­brate the newly ren­o­vated kitchen, the res­i­dents’ as­so­ci­a­tion hosted a spe­cial lunch on Satur­day with mem­ber for Bur­nett Stephen Ben­nett and lo­cal coun­cil­lor Tony Ric­cia­rdi.

With the help of Mr Ben­nett, the as­so­ci­a­tion se­cured $35,000 from the state gov­ern­ment Gambling Com­mu­nity Ben­e­fit Fund to as­sist in the ren­o­va­tions.

The as­so­ci­a­tion footed the re­main­ing $40,000 to com­plete the project.

sec­re­tary Ca­role Baxter said they were thrilled to of­fer a fully com­mer­cial kitchen for pub­lic hire at the venue.

“The other kitchen had reached its used-by date and was im­prac­ti­cal,” she said.

Mrs Baxter said she was hope­ful the pub­lic would support the as­so­ci­a­tion by hir­ing the fa­cil­ity, which was now ready for func­tions.

“With a com­mer­cial style kitchen we now have the con­fi­dence to ad­ver­tise the hall for func­tions,” she said.

The as­so­ci­a­tion is now look­ing to in­stall air-con­di­tion­ing.
