Bid to save church

THE Federal community is rallying to save the village’s church.
Resident Alan Goldstein is one of those behind a public meeting to be held tonight in a bid to save the church.
He said local families donated the land the church is on about 100 years ago, then built the church.
The Anglican Parish is planning to sell the land.
“The loss of the public use of this land and building will have a big impact on the use of the neighbouring Federal Hall, ” Mr Goldstein said.
“Many of the community events which happen in the Federal Hall will be severely restricted if the church leaves the community’s ownership.
“We have three choices: do nothing, or convince the church not to sell, or buy it back.
The parish have given the Federal community an opportunity to purchase it before it goes on the market.
The public meeting will be held from 7pm in the Federal Hall.
