Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said the Bonalbo Showground is set to get an upgrade following a $53,000 grant under the Building Better Regions Fund.
“This is a fantastic outcome for the Bonalbo community and the Show Society,” he said.
“The Show Society came to me because they wanted to construct a new multi-purpose building to replace the ageing poultry pavilion and provide two toilet blocks to cater for the disabled and elderly.
“The new facility will create a public space which can be utilized by the Show Society and the broader community.
“I am happy to announce today a grant of $53,000 to help them realise the project.
“This grant is under the Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.
“This is another great outcome delivered for our community. We have a plan to deliver a stronger economy and more jobs and we are focused on getting it done.”
David Whitney, President of the Show Society, thanked Mr Hogan for his support.
“It will mean health regulations will be up to date when we connect the sewerage and I won’t have to clean the blocked toilets anymore. There will be double the amount of facilities for the community to use too,” he said.
“Our poultry pavilion was in a bad way so an upgrade was badly needed.”
