MOTORISTS entering the Uralla Shire will soon be greeted with brand new and bright welcome signage, following an announcement today by Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall of a $100,000 State Government grant for the Uralla Rotary Club to undertake the ambitious community project.

Mr Marshall said the funding would be used by the club for the design and installation of large road signs at the four main entrances to the township and Shire. He said the signs would also recognise the Aboriginal history of the area.

“Uralla is renowned for its vibrant and bustling CBD and strong cultural ties, but it’s always lacked the same style of signage welcoming visitors to the district,” Mr Marshall said.

“Uralla Rotary ais teaming up with council to design and deliver new attractive signs which will also capture and recognise the Aboriginal history of the Uralla Shire.

“I congratulate Uralla Rotary on this initiative to install the signage but to further enhance one our region’s most vibrant towns – I cannot wait to see the new signage installed.”

Uralla Rotary Club President Clare Mailler said that they were excited to receive the funding.

“Our Club is excited to be part of creating a sense of connection, belonging and recognition within the community through the signage, recognisable by locals and visitors alike,” Ms Mailler said.

“We have discussed this as a possible project over a number of years, seeing the lack of signage at town and village main entrances as well as shire boundaries along the main road and highways.

“I see this as an opportunity to continue the work of Rotary in our community, promoting diversity and inclusion within our community for the benefit of all of us including visitors to our area.

“It will have a positive impact on visitor experience which will therefore return long term economic benefits.”
