Auburn Institute in Hands of Community


The Clare & Gilbert Valleys Council has handed over the title of the Auburn Institute to its community.


As a community hub that has needed some maintenance over recent years, the council has provided a one-off grant of $10,000 to the Auburn community, to cover running costs for the first 12 months of community ownership.

$220,000 in funding from the council has also been provided for repairs.

Mayor Allan Aughey OAM was pleased with the outcome which will see the historic building continue to thrive in the hands of its community.
