Disability access upgrade - 14 March 2014

Gympie Regional Council has now completed the construction of disabled toilet and shower facilities in Kilkivan Public Hall and Goomeri Hall of Memory along with the purchase of a portable stage lift to allow wheelchair access to the stages in major community venues.

Councillor Tony Perrett said, "We recognise these halls are important especially in our smaller towns and should be for the benefit of the whole community, including those with a disability or medical condition.

With the assistance of the Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program it is good to see these new facilities in action", he said.

The portable stage lift is available for use in community venues throughout the region. For more information on the lift or if you would like to use it at your event please council on 1300 307 800.
