Members of the Broughton Plains Heritage Society are thrilled at the prospect of a special guest attending the opening of a $100,000 community shed at Wandearah on Sunday.

Governor Hieu Van Le will be among the guests at the ceremony for the Broughton Plains Community Shed.

Made possible by a grant from the federal government, the project will mean that machinery from bygone eras will be able to be kept under cover and on show.

Under the Community Development Grants Program, the government contributed $52,000 to the project.

The shed stands beside the Wandearah Hall and old football oval. This is a hub for community activities including those on Australia Day.

The project is a joint enterprise of the society and the Nurom Whim Historical Group.

Organisers plan to kick off the opening ceremony at 2pm after worship in the Wandearah Uniting Church at 10am.

“We look forward to you celebrating with us on the day,” said society chairman Jack Keain.
