The community of Wattamondara is celebrating the recently completed $445,000 community hall located at the Wattamondara Recreation Ground thanks to funding from both the NSW State and Federal Governments.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said she was delighted to join the Wattamondara Recreation Reserve Land Managers and the local community at the official grand opening.

“This state-of-the-art community hall features amenities, kitchen and a space where community can come together to hold various celebrations, workshops and events,” Ms Cooke said. Wattamondara Recreation Reserve Land Manager Fiona Jennings said it is very grateful to all who have contributed to the brand new community asset which will be cherished for many generations to come.

“The community now has a venue to host public and private functions and facilitate community activities and initiatives,” she said.

Wattamondara Recreation Reserve Land Manager received $67,347 to complete the construction of the new hall through the NSW Government’s Crown Reserve Improvement Fund, with initial funding of $350,000 provided by the Federal Government’s Drought Communities Programme.

Further funding of $41,582 under Covid-19 Recovery Support Program was awarded to complete the final touches including ensuring the hall has all it needs to accommodate events such as tables, seating and appliances in the kitchen.
