NEW Mt Lawley MP Simon Millman’s come through on the election commitment to deliver $10,000 funding to the Mount Lawley Society to help preserve historical documents.
Mr Millman says; “Mt Lawley is a beautiful part of our city and it’s important that we respect, recognise and preserve its heritage. The Mount Lawley Society does a fantastic job.” Society president Paul Collins says over the years they’ve accrued a lot of valuable historical documents and photographs but they’d been sitting in their small, leaky basement storage room.
Mr Millman pledged the funding after hearing of the storage woes and the grant will go towards the gear they need to scan and digitise the artefacts. He’s photographed here with society president Paul Collins, committee member Christina Gustavson, patron Barrie Baker and secretary Sheila Robinson.
