Around $30,000 has been allocated to Peninsula projects under round one of the Central Coast Council’s heritage grant program for 2018-19.
Ms Joan Patrick received $3718 to publish the Dynasty of Butchers and their path to Woy Woy.
The Council staff recommended the project for funding as a “well-researched and historically important local history”.
The funding was conditional on 12 copies of the book being provided to Council libraries and inclusion of the Council logo.
Mr Laurence McCall received $8875 as part funding for proposed works to conserve the Old Killcare Store.
Council’s conditions included that it would inspect the site before any work was undertaken and that floor boards must be like for like and the species nominate prior to ordering.
Paint colours must also match the original.
Mr John Quigg was granted $10,000 for works to ensure the longevity of the Patonga War Memorial.
“The war memorial is an important heritage item with significance to the local community and the Central Coast generally,” the staff funding recommendation said.
“The works will ensure the longevity of the monument and will enhance the Patonga streetscape and character,” it said.
Ms Rachel Shea was granted $7037 for the Pearl Beach Progress Association oral history project.
“The project will record and present valuable information about the people and history of Pearl Beach,” the staff funding recommendation said.
“The information would otherwise go unrecorded,” it said.
“The project proposes contemporary methods of distribution and access to a broad range of the community.
“The project must ensure that it relates to the broad history of Pearl Beach while focusing on the progress hall and its people.”
