Community groups across Victoria are being recognised for preserving, recording and sharing their community’s local history.

Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing today congratulated the Tetoora Road Community Centre for receiving funding as part of the Victorian Government’s Local History Grants Program.

The Tetoora Road Community Centre received $4720 to go towards their efforts in shining the spotlight on Tetoora Road’s rich and diverse history.

The funding aims to record the oral history of the Tetoora Road area, which will be made available on the Baw Baw Shire website.

They are among 53 community groups across Victoria sharing in $350,000 as part of the 2020 round of Local History Grants.
