Kilmore Guide and Scout Hall improvements around the corner

Popular Stories

The Kilmore Guide and Scout Hall will soon have repairs after receiving a grant from the Australian Rail Track Corporation’s, ARTC, Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations Program.

The hall has hosted weekly meetings for Girl Guides and Scouts since 1970, empowering young people to be responsible community members.

The Inland Rail support program, which offers funding between $1000 and $4000 for individuals and organisations in regional areas, will be used to repair the hall’s leaking roof, replace the worn kitchen and hall floors with a new surface, and fix a water leak.

Kilmore Girl Guides leader Carolyn Atkinson said the upgrades would help the both groups to continue their services to the community.

“We’re guiding our young people to not only become good community members, but to contribute and become leaders,” she said.

“With a safer and more comfortable hall we will attract more members and increase the sustainability of our membership.”

ARTC Victoria and South Australia projects general manager Ed Walker encouraged other non-profit groups to submit applications for the next round of grants, open until July 31.

“We are proud to give back to the communities that are home to Inland Rail. The work these organisations do is instrumental to the wellbeing of regional communities,” he said.

“The latest round of funding takes overall support for local communities and associations along the Inland Rail alignment to nearly $1.1 million since the program launched in 2019.”
