Do you have or know of a conservation project that relates to the Mudgee Region’s heritage, that might be in need of a financial boost? The Mid-Western Regional Council has recently announced a Local Heritage Assistance Fund that will offer a small number of grants to help with the conservation of some of heritage sites in and around Mudgee, Gulgong and Rylstone.
The Mudgee Region is steeped in rich historical monuments and sites that the community is proud of and would love to see preserved for generations to come. According to the Mid-Western Regional Council’s website, over 400 sites including historic buildings, parks and trees, monuments and artifacts are recognised as heritage items or areas.
The funding from the Council’s boost will be used to carry out the approved projects between January and April 2012, and heritage conservation project applications will be taken until the 30th of September 2011.
We would love to see all of Mudgee, Gulgong’s and Rylstone’s heritage significant sites to be properly preserved and maintained, so please spread the word and make sure we do our part as community members in keeping the Mudgee Region’s history open and in the public domain for decades to come.
