Butter Factory to get cooking with grant

Milang and District Community Association has been awarded a state government grant of $50,000 from its Thriving Regions program.


The money will be used to install an industrial kitchen in the Milang Lakeside Butter Factory, which will support hospitality training and events.


It is part of an additional $800,000 allocated to support community projects in regional South Australia.


Delivered through the Thriving Regions Fund, the program provides small grants to associations and charities for projects that build social resilience. 


The state government says these facilitate greater community participation, a sense of belonging, and ease of access.


The grants range from $20,000 to $50,000 and are used to fund initiatives such as new or improved infrastructure and equipment; access to services and programs; and events with wellbeing outcomes.


An additional 21 projects have had their applications granted as a result of the funding.


An extension to the Jamestown shearing training centre, new machinery and tools at the Millicent Men’s Shed metal workshop, and a new playground and shaded area at the Lochiel Community Centre are among the other successful projects.


The restored heritage-listed Butter Factory was officially opened on 14 April and will host the Alexandrina Heritage Awards on 23 May.


The Thriving Regions Fund is a $15 million commitment per annum, to support projects that enable regional industries to grow jobs and strengthen regional communities.
