Free outdoor dining furniture on offer to community groups
As hospitality venues get back to business after Coronavirus restrictions, the Corangamite Shire is donating its temporary picnic settings to community groups.
In October last year Council received $250,000 from the State Government's Outdoor Dining Package to buy the settings and provide more socially distanced outdoor dining options.
With the help of Men's Sheds across the Shire, more than 70 settings were built and placed in all towns across the Shire.
Mayor Ruth Gstrein has invited not-for-profit community groups to now submit expressions of interest.
“The outdoor settings have been terrific, they’ve been really well used, It highlights to Council that there’s a need for more outdoor settings to be installed in certain locations, and that’s what we’ll be doing" she said.
