The Erica and District Progress Association will lease the former Rawson Police Station building from the Baw Baw Shire after councillors approved the community group’s use proposal last week.

The primary use of the building will be as the offices of the Thomson Times newspaper, which will move from the nearby West Gippsland Healthcare Group premises.

The Times had recently been informed by the WGHG its use of their building could no longer be accommodated.

UPDATE: The WGHG has corrected the council’s suggestion the group was asked to move. Click here for more.

North ward councillor David Balfour thanked the West Gippsland Healthcare Group for its hosting of the Times.


“I must acknowledge the WGHG because they’ve been fantastic,” he said.

“Since about 1977 they’ve helped the Thomson Times. They’ve made available one little room and we don’t realise exactly how much money that little contribution has cost the group.”

Mr Balfour said Landcare and the local Lions Club had also expressed interest in using the building.
