OPEN DOOR: Tumby Bay District Council chief executive officer Trevor Smith said the new toilet facilities could mean increased hall patronage.

Member for Grey Rowan Ramseyannounced last week the council would get $6400 fromround two of the federal government’sStronger Communities Program.

The funding will go towardunisex disabled toilets inside the hall.

The funding will cover half of the $12,800 cost of the toilets, budgeted for in thecouncil’s Annual Business Plan.

The council’s chief executive officer Trevor Smith said this was a great result for the council and would ensure more people could use the hall in the future.

“We’re really pleased that it’s been successful,” he said.

“There were no disabled facilities at the hall and this will increase patronage at the hall by those groups who will benefit from the introduction of a disabled toilet facility.”

The hall has seen widespread use bythe community recently, includingtheTumby Bay Showboat Stars of the Futureshows held on July 9 and 10.

Mr Ramsey said he was delighted to see the council would be able to put in the facilities for its patrons.

“The Tumby Bay Soldiers Memorial Hall is an important facility in the coastal town and is used by many groups in the community and I congratulate the council on this initiative,” Mr Ramsey said.

“I was recently privileged to attend the Stars of the Future variety concert and am pleased that this funding will allow disabled facilities to be available for everyone who attends these fantastic community events.”

The Stronger Communities Programwas created to fund small capital projects in local communities within each of the 150 federal electorates.

The first round saw $150,000 provided to 19 projects across the Grey electorate.

The council has three other projects that require grant funding before they can continue –the Port Neill Foreshore Plan, sealing the Balumbah-Kinnaird Road and the Tumby Bay stormwater management plan.
