Member of Lions Club – State Parliament
Stratford RSL Sub-Branch’s need for a significant upgrade was highlighted in State Parliament today.
Gippsland East Nationals MP, Tim Bull, told the Legislative Assembly: “Having recently met with members on-site, it was clear this important facility urgently needs a cash injection to bring it up to modern standards”.
“Members have identified a number of required upgrades, which include toilets with disability access and I would encourage the Veterans Minister to take an interest in this situation,” he said.
“The sub-branch also needs to upgrade its flooring, relocate the front entrance and construct an outdoor area to make it more accessible,” he said.
Mr Bull said the proposed upgrades would likely cost between $250,000 and $300,000 to complete.
“I know the sub-branch has lodged grant applications, so I hope members will be given the backing they need to make further improvements to this important community centre.”
