THANKS to a $4,500 grant from the NSW Government, the gardeners at Inverell’s Cooinda Retirement Village will now be able to source their water from the village’s rain water tanks, Member for Northern Tablelands announced today.

Mr Marshall said the rain water tanks were a valuable asset but weren’t used to their full potential due to lack of piping to distribute the water throughout the village.

“Underground piping will now be installed so the water collected in the tank can be used throughout the village,” Mr Marshall said.

“There are some very keen gardeners there and I’m sure their vegie patches and flowers beds will enjoy the benefits of rain water.

“Using tank water will also help cut council water costs.

“It’s an excellent project and one that fits perfectly with the Community Building Partnership criteria – helping small community groups maintain and improve their facilities so I was more than happy to support their application for funding.”

Mr Marshall visited the retirement village this week to meet with some of the residents and deliver the good news.

“The village gardens always look well groomed; they are well looked after by staff and I know many of the residents enjoy pottering in their patches.

“This grant has been very welcome news and residents can now look forward to sources fresh rain water for their gardens.”
