New ablution block for St George Pony & Riding Club

April 4, 2022

Maranoa MP David Littleproud today announced that the St George Pony and Riding Club will receive a $13,500 Federal Government grant to purchase an ablution block including disability facilities.

The funding from Round 7 of the Stronger Communities Programme will help the club to erect an ablution block for use by members and visitors as there is currently no access to shower and toilet facilities on the Club’s grounds.

Mr Littleproud said the project would provide an essential facility at the Pony Club grounds, which are utilised for many community events including campdrafts, dressage, show jumping and one day events.

“I’m a firm believer in bringing people together and improving community services across Maranoa because it has a positive flow-on effect on our quality of life and how we support each other – this upgrade for the St George Pony and Riding Club reflects this.

“Regional communities are the heart of this country and I want to make sure that small capital projects are funded and the community gets exactly what it needs.”

Round 7 of the Stronger Communities Programme has seen $150,000 in Federal Government funding made available to Maranoa community groups – fourteen projects across Maranoa were funded in this round.

Project grants range from $2500 to $20,000 to help bolster rural communities.
