RSL and firies up­grades thanks to fund­ing

Isis Town and Country - - News | Welcome -

IT’S the site of many an ex­change of beer and coin but it’s been 15 years since the bar it­self at the Childers RSL got much love.

That will change thanks to a grant of $18,113 from the Com­mu­nity Gam­bling Fund, which funds a makeover.

“We’re over the moon,” the RSL sub-branch’s Roy Owen said.

As well as the bar in­doors, the club will in­stall a shaded al­fresco area out the back.

The Gre­gory River Ru­ral Fire Ser­vice will also ben­e­fit with $17,000 from the fund to build a new shed – a wel­come re­lief af­ter vi­tal equip­ment was re­cently sab­o­taged off site.

Burnett MP Stephen Ben­nett was thrilled to de­liver the good news to both groups and will per­son­ally sup­ply the flag­poles for the firies.

BOOST FOR BAR: Brian Terry, Stephen Ben­nett, Vicky McCarthy, Bob Arm­strong, Judy Bohm-Parr, Roy Owen and Paul Col­lier.
