River Terkildsen from Sincerely, LGBT, a youth run group for queer youth started in 2021, will receive a $600 Mayoral donation towards holding meetings at the Tomaree Library to provide support and advice for queer youth.

The Parent Teacher Fellowship at St Philip’s Christian School will also receive Mayoral funding of $2,000 towards a fireworks display at the St Philip’s Fair in October 2022.

Finally, the Raymond Terrace Historical Society, a voluntary group aiming to bring together people who share a love for their heritage, admiration for the achievements of people of the past and the desire to discover, record and publicise their lives, and the times in which they lived, will receive $2,000 in Mayoral funding towards the roof structure at Sketchley Cottage Museum.

West Ward Councillor Giacomo Arnott thanked the Council for the support for Raymond Terrace Historical Society.

“Sketchley Cottage is one of the most historic buildings we have in Raymond Terrace and making sure it is properly maintained and stands tall and proud is important to us.

“So, thank you for your support and hopefully this funding will go some way to resolving maintenance issues, letting the team there move on with some more historical work rather than maintenance work,” Cr Arnott said.
