The Western Star - - News - LUCY RUTHERFORD

CUN­NA­MULLA will have new life breathed into it as part of Ru­ral Aid’s Sus­tain­able Com­mu­nity pro­gram’s $100,000 com­mit­ment to sup­port a makeover of ten towns over a five-year pe­riod.

Ru­ral Aid’s Farm Army of vol­un­teers will spend a week in the town next year bring­ing a wel­come fi­nan­cial in­jec­tion to the town’s lo­cal busi­nesses.

Sec­re­tary of the Cun­na­mulla Show So­ci­ety Amy Palmer said the com­mit­tee was in­spired to ap­ply for the fund­ing to give the Cun­na­mulla show­grounds a much needed facelift.

“As you’re driv­ing into

Cun­na­mulla, the show­grounds are the first thing you see so we re­ally wanted to give it a makeover and make it look loved,” she said.

“I felt like this is a new chap­ter and just couldn’t be­lieve we were so lucky.”
