Maranoa MP: Fully equipping Blackall’s craft centre 

November 12, 2019

Catering for the needs of all is a key goal for Blackall’s Lost Art Community Craft Centre, which received $20,000 through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme, to build new public amenities, Maranoa MP David Littleproud announced today.

“These upgrades and developments guarantee that children, men, women and the disabled have access to bathrooms and that goes a long way to making sure that the Lost Art Community Craft Centre is supported and used as much as possible,” Mr Littleproud said.

“I’m a firm believer in bringing people together and improving community services across rural and regional areas in Maranoa because it has a positive flow-on effect on our quality of life and how we support each other – the Lost Art Community Craft Centre is a perfect example of that.

“Our bush communities are the heart of this country and I want to make sure that small capital projects are funded and the community gets exactly what it needs.”

Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme has seen $150,000 in Federal Government funding made available to Maranoa community groups.

Project grants range from $2500 to $20,000 to help bolster rural communities.
