WHITTON community volunteer groups earlier this year collaborated on a FRRR - Investing in Rural Communities Futures grant application, which was successful.
The $10,207 grant is for the setting up of a community hot desk.
This will be a central, shared, resourced office space, available for use by our community not-for-profit volunteer groups.
It will be located at the Whitton Museum, who will be one of the groups to greatly benefit from this.
THE waste transfer station for Whitton residents opened for use on September 9.
The current hours being trialed are Wednesday 12.30pm to 4.30pm and Saturday 8.30am to 12.30pm.
There will be an official opening ceremony taking place on Tuesday, October 13.
This facility provides residents a safer, environmentally friendly site for the disposal of additional domestic waste, recyclable items and domestic garden waste.
THE final touches are being put in place and interviews for casual staff have been underway in readiness for the opening of the Whitton Malt House this month.
The Malt House already has an online gift shop offering for sale beautiful glasses, candles and hampers.
These recently made some great Father's Day gifts for their lucky recipients.
The Malt House is sure to draw many more visitors to the area, including Whitton, and the community is looking forward to its opening and visiting the facility themselves.
THE murals for the main street of Whitton are one step closer with expressions of interest having gone out to artists.
These murals are expected to be completed this year.
Expressions of interest have also gone out for the artwork on the water tower.
This work is expected to be completed in 2021.
