Earlier this year Member for Bathurst Paul Toole announced funding of more than $167,000 for repairs and maintenance to the iconic building to ensure it remains in good shape for generations to come.

"The refurbishment will help restore and conserve the building for future generations of community use."
Blayney's InSync Plumbing team headed by Brad Henry have been tasked with restoring the building's external drainage, and despite the frequency of the rain lately, the job is on schedule.
"We're on track with the refurbishments, but still have a fair bit to go," Mr Henry said.
"We'll work through most of December, before returning in January - residents will be able to continue to see the improvements as they happen."
Mr Henry advised that some streets in Carcoar would experience a temporary power outage on January 13th, while they disconnect the power to work on the street-facing section of the building.
