Senior citizens hall heats up after grants
THE Warwick Senior Citizens are cooking up a storm.
Well not quite, but thanks to recent grants, the group was able to refurbish their kitchen and buy a new fridge and microwave.
The group received $12,000 through the Community Benefits Grant, courtesy of the State Government, as well as $1530 from the Southern Downs Regional Council.
Warwick Senior Citizens secretary Joan Perry said the group could not have afforded the refurbishment and new additions without the grants.
"The new kitchen, microwave and fridge were really needed," Mrs Perry said.
"The fridge, in particular, was on its last legs."
Mrs Perry said the wider community would also benefit from the new additions.
"Our hall (located on the corner of Guy and Albert St) is not just used for the Senior Citizens - it is also used for community events," she said.
"If we have good facilities, the more likely the community is to use the hall."
Mrs Perry thanked the State Government and Southern Downs Regional Council for their financial assistance.
"Warwick Senior Citizens would like to thank and acknowledge the Queensland Government Benefits Grant and the Southern Downs Regional Council Grant for the money granted to them," Mrs Perry said.
"Our catering group are just over the moon at the extra space to move around to do their work."
