Funding for Hartley site
THE success of the inaugural Back to Hartley event in October was a sure sign the historic village’s revitalisation plans are moving along well.
With the $5100 raised from the celebration handed over to the designated three charities at the site on last week, Member for Calare Paul Toole kept the momentum going with an announcement of $452,000 of funding from the State Government to be spent on the second stage of plans.
While the Cancer Support Group Inc Lithgow and District, Lithgow Prostate Cancer Support Group and Lithgow Community Projects Incorporated were happy with their cheques, the Hartley Historic Site received a very healthy boost.
With the money, revitalisation works are planned to be done by the end of May next year.
