The existing kitchen was installed in early 1950's when the building was erected. It is now very much out of date. The local community is small and hence funds are not readily available to do upgrade work. The park is hired by local and outside persons/groups. An upgrade is needed to make it more attractive and usable to hire groups. The park is also a last refugee area in case of bush fires and so in case of such an event a good usable kitchen would be important.

Additionally, the pavillion & park have in recent years been host to the Keyneton CFS brigade anniversary celebrations and come next Tuesday, 21 October 2017, the kitchen will be a temporary science laboratory for BioBlitz, a Water Watch project under the auspices of the not-for-profit, Eastern Hills & Murray Plains Catchment Group to measure and analyze the health of our district waterways based on insect diversity involving a dozen local volunteers!

The dear little tea room pavillion was a proud edition within a few years of the opening and dedication of the post WWII Lindsay Evans Memorial Park (aka Keyneton Park). Throughout its hey day and the decades since the tea rooms regularly hosted afternoon teas for the local tennis club during the summer Saturday competition season, Keyneton school sports days, family events as Confirmation celebrations, 21st birthdays, family reunion get-togethers, community events as fund raising fun days (fancy dress footy matches [1950s]), 1989 Keyneton history book launch, and the annual Keyneton Christmas Party to name a few; and notwithstanding the significant annual Hoggett Competition of the Angaston Agricultural Bureau which attracts grazier participants near and far, including a successful high schools competition for the agriculture students. The park is a functional space with tennis courts and war memorial children's playground, and all the more so with the installation of two fire emergency service water tanks. Now with the park space formally designated a public 'Last Resort Refuge' fire emergency location, an upgrade of the kitchen is all the more essential if not urgent.

It's a brilliant park for kids parties and get together's- an upgraded kitchen will make it even more useful and allow increased community use.

Great little local Park. Kitchen is shabby and outdated. Not much in it. Please support with funding to improve it.

Believe that as this is a fire safety area for our community it is important that it is suitable safe and usable.
