The Ladysmith & District Historical Society is thrilled to announce that it has been granted $89,000 by the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development as administered by Heritage BC for repair and renovation of the Ladysmith Museum on First Avenue. This funding, gratefully received, comes through the Unique Heritage Infrastructure Stream of the Province of BC Community Economic Resiliency Infrastructure Program (CERIP).
The LDHS is very grateful to the Province for this significant grant which will allow us to address issues with the building and also improve its functioning as a Museum and community facility,” said Quentin Goodbody, President of the LDHS.
“The money will go toward roof repair, gutter installation, improvement of perimeter drainage and minor renovations to improve space utilization and accessibility. Not only will our community benefit from an improved museum building, but also from the employment that the project will entail.”
The work is anticipated to occur during 2021.
Ladysmith Museum will be undergoing much needed repairs.
