Tamara Smith MP announces $17K in funding for Alstonville Historical Society

Tamara Smith MP, Member for Ballina announces $17,280 in funding through the Community Building Partnership for the Alstonville Plateau Historical Society.

“The Community Building Partnership program is a great grassroots fund that directly helps create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.” Ms Smith said.

“The Alstonville Plateau Historical Society is a fantastic community organisation that collects, preserves and displays historical documents and photographs of the Alstonville Plateau and Ballina Shire for current and future generations. It is my pleasure to be able to assist them to upgrade the fence of the heritage listed Crawford House.” Ms Smith said.

“Since becoming the custodians of Crawford House in 2001, the Alstonville Plateau Historical society have lovingly restored the interior of the house and made it into the fantastic museum and historical monument it is today. The fence restoration will further enhance the historical and community value of this iconic building for years to come.”

“Now, more than ever it is important to support community organisations whose future is uncertain due to the pandemic, and it’s my honour to be able to do that today.” Ms Smith said.
