Bundarra Showground is proudly sporting a new horse stable complex and amenities block, thanks to $129,076 of State Government support.

Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall, who was at the showground over the weekend to cut the ribbon on the new stables block, said the new stables looked fantastic, with the old wooden and dilapidated structure replaced after many decades of wear and tear.

“I was thrilled to join committee members and the community during a team penning event to officially open the new stables and amenities block,” Mr Marshall said.

“The Bundarra Show Society has a small and active committee who work hard to keep the Showground looking its best, especially in preparation for each year’s show.

“The completed stables look fabulous and have received a big thumbs up from users already.

“Full credit to President David King and the show society – they have done an outstanding job using the money to deliver these fantastic new facilities visitors and locals.

“One of the most used facilities at the Showground were the old horse stables which served the community for many years – the upgrades have now made them safe and functional for horses and their owners.

“Bundarra Pony Club also uses the ground and facilities and the upgrades will be a welcomed relief for all involved.”

Bundarra Show Society Secretary Andrea Robinson said it was wonderful to see the completion of the new stables.

“This project provides our community with facilities that will continue to be enjoyed for years to come and is a wonderful and much needed upgrade,” Ms Robinson said.

“We very much appreciate all of Adam’s interest and work in facilitating funding for our project.”
