Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan met with representatives of the Lower Clarence Arts and Craft Association (LCACA) and the Maclean Show Society last Friday April 1, to announce that the LCACA had been successful in its application for a Stronger Communities program grant.
“Around $8,000 will be provided to the club [to] enable the roof [of the Old Tea Pavilion at the Maclean showground] to be insulated, improve airflow by changing window arrangements and improve the washroom facilities,” Mr Hogan said.
“The tea room provides an important meeting place for our local community.
“The association uses this room for many community programs; activities like art workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions and meetings can now be held all year round.”
The show society’s president, Brian Ferrie, said the pavilion was likely to be over 100 years old.
