Round Table serves a treat

THE Borough in Korumburra was bursting at the seams with a community celebrating the excitement for plans to revitalise the town last Wednesday.
The Korumburra Round Table hosted a celebration of local food and hospitality along with displays outlining the Korumburra Community Hub and Streetscape Revitalisation plan.
The event was a resounding success as more than 100 people attended the soiree where wine flowed freely and staff from The Borough’s twin cafes Udder and Hoe, and Tamsin’s Table were run off their feet.
Local producers including Prom Country Cheese, Grow Lightly and Tuerong Farm bakery held stalls promoting the gastronomical abundance of the region.
The Round Table acts as a conduit between South Gippsland Shire Council and stakeholders in Korumburra with 18 citizen members, including representatives of Karmai Children’s Centre, Korumburra Community Development Association and local schools.
Round Table president Pee Wee Lewis said the celebration was everything the group had envisaged as a feel good night for the town.
“It is nice on a night like this for people to be able to come and just ask us questions and be able to grill their councillors and the shire executives who have supported us in growing the town,” she said.
“There is a really positive vibe in Korumburra at the moment. It’s fantastic to have secured the architects for the hub.
“As the Round Table, we just try and share all the community views and get a feel for what the community wants. This process has been going on for a few years and the shire has shown great support and said, ‘Yes, Korumburra is a priority project’.”
The hub is proposed to be built within the railway station site and include a library, Milpara Community House and Korumburra Historical Society. The site could also include a skate park with open spaces.
The streetscape project will beautify Korumburra’s main street, Commercial Street, and surrounds.
