Historic Bunbury buildings set for makeover

By Kevin Kelly

The recipients of funding in this year's 2014-15 Heritage Grants program have been announced, and two Bunbury buildings are set to benefit.

The two locations – Cronshaw's Store and 10 Turner Street – are already popular with those living in Bunbury rentals and will now be restored to their former glory.

Cronshaw's Store will undergo restoration work on its facade, which will include reconstructing balustrades and masonry turrets that had previous been a major feature.

Window awnings and balconies throughout this 1938 building have also been earmarked for improvements once the $100,000 grant has been received.

The 1880 Victorian building at 10 Turner Street is to benefit from a new roof after the existing property was allowed to fall into disrepair.

A total of $11,880 has been received for the project, which will no doubt be welcomed by those living in the surrounding area.

A number of renovation projects are currently taking place in the city – the local council recently revealed how the Old Railway Station's toilet block was to be given a makeover.

This is being implemented so the facilities can be reopen in time ready for the busy Christmas shopping period.
