Girl Guides’ new home nears completion

The Cobar Girl Guides are on track to enjoy their new digs by early next year with building works scheduled to be completed by mid-next month, with some landscaping to follow.
The conversion of the Council-owned former gatekeepers’ three bedroom house on Maiden Avenue into the Guides’ future base includes a brand new large open kitchen, toilet and entrance ramp.
“The project is progressing very well, with some internal fit out still left to occur,” Cobar Shire Council project coordinator Carly Hunter explained.
“The project is on schedule to be completed (by) mid-December.”
Cobar Girl Guides leader Cathy Manns revealed a while ago their local current base had fallen into a state of disrepair, which included a discovery of annoying white ants.
Ms Manns said their new base will meet Girl Guides Australia standards allowing the group to utilise it for camping and weekend activities.
This project is jointly funded by the NSW Governments Stronger Country Communities Fund and Cobar Shire Council.
