The Tomingley town hall has officially opened its doors after receiving major upgrades under round one of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities grant.
Last week a community barbecue was hosted to reveal upgrades to the facility, which Narromine Shire Mayor Craig Davies hopes the community will enjoy.
“It’s had a real face lift out there,” Cr Davies said.
“Many renovations have been done and it looks in very good order.”
“It’s a great facility it can be used from anything from engagements, weddings, parties any social functions people wish to use it for,” he said.
