The Canowindra Little Athletics Centre were very excited to show off their newly acquired hurdles at the first session for Term 4 last Thursday afternoon at the Canowindra Oval.
The new set of hurdles were kindly donated by Riverstone Little Athletics Centre and are worth about $6,000. The hurdles are fully height adjustable so can be used for all ages of athletes which is great for the Club.
Each lane of hurdles has been kindly sponsored by a number of local businesses with their names painted onto each hurdle. The local business sponsors for the 2020 season include Viridis Ag, Canowindra Bowling Club, PA and CL McKenzie Builders, Canowindra Tyre Service, Daly Flooring and Carpet and Ashley Brown Welding. The sponsors money also allowed the Canowindra Little Athletics Centre to purchase a new trailer for the hurdles to be stored and carted around on, with another trailer acquired through a grant.
“It was so lovely seeing all our athletes having their first session on the new hurdles today,” said Canowindra Little Athletics Centre Club President Bec Phelan.
“A huge thank you must go to our sponsors for coming on board and to Andrew Phelan for organising and painting all the hurdles over the past few months. The club is stocked with equipment and going strong,” concluded Bec.
