Chapman Valley Community Growth Fund

The Chapman Valley Historical Society Museum were recipients of two Shire of Chapman Valley Community Growth Fund projects during the last round.  One project enabled the museum to install power to light up the magnificent new shed showcasing local vintage machinery.
The other included workshops with a Heritage Consultant to assist members to make changes in areas of the Museum, bringing Chapman Valley stories together in a more cohesive manner.  A session on 'Items of Significance' was also valuable bringing new ways to accept donations and digitise significance.
The Chapman Valley Agricultural Society also received funds through the Shire Community Growth Fund to install a Park and Pay area with fencing to assist with the growing visitor numbers to the Chapman Valley Show.
