A show of strength

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

MUN­DUB­BERA Show So­ci­ety has ben­e­fited from grants from the En­ter­prise Foun­da­tion, the char­i­ta­ble arm of Bendigo Bank.

The show grounds were iden­ti­fied lo­cally as a sound and safe emer­gency base in time of dis­as­ter.

Some of the funds raised to ben­e­fit Mun­dub­bera af­ter the 2010-11 floods have been used to up­grade the bar­be­cue and kitchen ar­eas.

“It’s more than 32 years since the bar­be­cue area was built and this re­fur­bish­ment has meant we now have new bar­be­cues and new stain­less steel bench spa­ces,” said Mun­dub­bera Show So­ci­ety trea­surer Gayle Pott.

“And we’ve opened up the in­ter­nal walls for bet­ter ac­cess.

“Our fa­cil­i­ties were used by those af­fected by the floods last year and now we’ll be able to cope much bet­ter in fu­ture emer­gen­cies and our pa­trons will also ben­e­fit.”

Mun­dub­bera Com­mu­nity Bank branch of Bendigo Bank chair­man Tim Dug­gan at­tended a re­cent cook-up to open the fa­cil­i­ties.

“Th­ese funds have been al­lo­cated to ben­e­fit our town be­cause we have a com­mu­nity bank,” Mr Dug­gan said.

“It’s won­der­ful to see $46,750 used to ben­e­fit our com­mu­nity and more funds will be al­lo­cated in the new year to help light up the show­ground.”
