Royalities for Regions Whealtbelt Deveopment Fund Community Chest Grant
An amount of $50,000 has been awarded to New Norcia for the implementation of an Indigenous Archaeological display in the heritage Apiary building behind the Monastery and to upgrade the existing River Walk, making it a year round experience whilst creating better spaces for reflection and nature watching. Cultural, historical and Indigenous information areas will be placed along the route to further enhance the experience. The addition of seating along the route will enable reflection. New Norcia would like to take the opportunity to congratulate all the other recipients.
Shane Love, Member for Moore and Wendy Newman, WDC CEO, came to New Norcia present the Abbot with the certificate. Work will start in July and should be finished by December 2017.
