FUNDING FOR NYNGAN
ABOVE AND BELOW: Nyngan’s Fire Station to be Restored to Its Former Glory! Thanks to the funding from the NSW Liberal Nationals Government, $150,000 will be used to restore the Old Fire Station & Antique Fire Engine. A significant piece of local history, the Fire Station will be transformed into a public museum showcasing community treasures. The antique fire engine, a special piece in the hearts of local residents, will be restored to its former glory & become a centre piece of the museum. By investing in the restoration, we are preserving Nyngan’s heritage & sharing it with future generations to come. Source and Image Credits: Sam Farraway MLC Facebook page.
