Project Summary

The Victorian Government has funded roof repairs to the Bendigo Trades Hall. The Bendigo Trades Hall and Literary Institute received a matched $25,000 grant to assess water damage and replace the corrugated iron roof. More than 50 community groups use the space annually for a range of events.

The grant recipient reports:

The Bendigo Trades Hall has been serving our community for over 132 years, today it is still a fully functioning Trades Hall with a long and colourful history. As a not for profit it is difficult to keep up with maintenance costs, the opportunity to receive funding has helped us preserve an important community asset so we may continue to serve the communities of central Victoria.
