The installation of heavy echo-reducing curtains in the MRC will create a more comfortable and noise-friendly environment for residents to participate in meetings and community events held in the centre.
The project will also benefit community members with reduced hearing capabilities.
Mayor of Victoria Daly Regional Council, B. Pedwell, said this grant would mean making a well-loved community space more accessible for all.
“We thank FRRR for supporting this initiative, and I can’t wait to see what difference this project makes to the residents of Pine Creek – now, and many years into the future,” Mayor Pedwell said.
The approved grant amount is $9,973 and was secured via a donation from philanthropic group the Sidney Myer Foundation.
FRRR is the only national foundation focused on ensuring social and economic strength in remote, rural and regional Australia.
