Waroona Show Grounds benefit from Bendigo Bank Grant Funds
Thanks to a grant received recently by the Waroona Agricultural Society from the Bendigo Community Bank Pinjarra Branch for $6004, the Cattle Yards at the Waroona Showgrounds are receiving a much-needed facelift.
Waroona Agricultural Society members held a busy bee on Friday 15th June to commence upgrade works to the yards which includes replacing the old timber rails with new steel cattle rail. The new railing will provide better safety and security for the cattle at show time and will improve safety for the volunteer workers, stewards, judges and spectators.
Additional earthworks around the yards and the Bob Hull Cattlemen’s Shed have been completed by the Shire of Waroona who have sealed the previously sandy, boggy area with gravel and hotmix. Water points have also been added to the area for the benefit of the workers and the cattle. “The Waroona Agricultural Society pride themselves on their continued attention to maintenance and upgrades of their facilities, but they would not be able to do this without the support of the Shire of Waroona, sponsorship, corporate funding and volunteer in-kind work from members of the society,” said Society President Mr Eric Walmsley. “On behalf of the Society, I would like to express our thanks to the Bendigo Community Bank Pinjarra Branch for their funding support for this project. Not only does this upgrade benefit the Waroona Show and the Waroona Agricultural Society, but it also improves the aesthetics of the Showgrounds and the town as the yards are in quite a prominent position with street frontage.”
