Christmas arrived early this year for the Wingham Rifle Club after being presented with a grant from the State government’s Community Building Partnership program.

On Saturday December 16, Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead visited the club to inform them that their application for funding was successful. 

The funding will be used to undertake much needed work at the clubhouse.

It was last updated in 1983 and can now be painted.

A solar system will also be installed at the site. 

This will lower the cost of power for all clubs using the range as well as reduce to carbon footprint on the environment.

The building was relocated to its current position in 1953 after formally being situated at the Wingham Wharf.
