NSW Nationals Upper House MP Sam Farraway last week announced over $1.035 million for upgrade work at six regional showgrounds, in the Orange Electorate under the NSW Government’s COVID-19 stimulus program, including funds to complete The Naylor Pavilion at Orange Showground.
“It’s fantastic to report that the stimulus program will back more improvement works in the region while supporting jobs and the economy,” Mr Farraway said.
Cudal Showground will receive $72,014 in funding to upgrade its electrical system to provide more power and power outlets for showground uses and install a new water system to improve water storage and increase water access points.
The Eugowra Showground will receive $26,137 in funding to install a bore, pump and irrigation piping to water the grounds and support more camping and caravanning in Eugowra.
Mr Farraway said this latest funding follows the allocation of $651,974 in stimulus funding last financial year for upgrade works at Orange, Canowindra, Manildra, Parkes, Eugowra, Trundle, Molong, Bedgerabong, Forbes, Cumnock, Cudal and Yeoval showgrounds.
The COVID-19 stimulus program has now allocated a total of $35.77 million to showground improvement projects across the state.
