Moruya Antique Tractor & Machinery Association lost everything in the Black Summer Bushfires that tore through Mogo on the 31st December 2019. Since that time their members have been working tirelessly to try to rebuild and to once again be able to restore & preserve engines & local farm equipment of historic significance, for the enjoyment & information of present & future generations.
To this end they have managed to accumulate grant funding and have put together a detailed plan to be considered by our Local Council as an integral part of “Mogo Tourism”. They are hoping for a grant of Crown Land to erect a “Community Hub” which would not only house their headquarters, display area & workshop, but also a Community Space for other Community Groups needing a space for meetings etc. & a Community Pantry for locals in need of help.
Currently MATAMA is renting a shed in Moruya to keep their plans alive & their members positive!! But ongoing rent costs big money!!
If anyone in the Community has a small parcel of land to house a couple of containers or a fairly large secure farm shed that they are willing to loan MATAMA on a short term basis, please contact their President Steve Shields on 0418 439 914.
