It’s ok, I’m not running a political campaign. I appreciate you voting for our VRI project in the Bank of Melbourne Local Project competition. The wonderful community of Latrobe Valley have been working together on building this space and every dollar we raised is supported and extended by the generosity of many people.
Education is it’s own reward. It’s a valuable possession that no one can take away from you once you gain it. I love learning and working with our community to make a space for learning together is fun and rewarding.
In the last six weeks we’ve completed the restoration of the roof and painted the interior of the hall. Over a hundred people have been through the building. Plastic was laid on the floor, windows and fixtures were taped, scaffolding was constructed, the walls and ceiling were sanded, washed, puttied, treated for mould and then undercoated and sanded. We’ve had two local secondary schools, a major community working bee and corrections teams put their time in. Many local businesses have made contributions. You can read more about it on our Digital Shed webpage or Facebook Page. Follow our project and watch as it grows.
