A GRANT of $15,000 was recently approved by Community Bank Collie for renovations to the Anglican Op-Shop.
The thrift shop, which is located near the All-Saints Church in Venn Street, badly needed a new ceiling as well as a new shed.
Op-shop manager Gwen Molnar said the building’s ceiling was about 60 years old and dangerously run-down.
“One day we were sitting having morning tea and the panels on the other side of the room fell down,” she said.
“It could’ve killed someone if they’d been sitting under them – that’s the bit that was really scary.”
Gwen said the new ceiling was installed before Christmas.
