New uniforms for Alpha Pony Club

June 25, 2021

A grant of $4500 through the Stronger Communities Programme will help to get the newly reformed Alpha Pony Club back on its feet, Maranoa MP David Littleproud announced today.

“The Alpha Pony Club has recently reformed after an 11-year break, which is great news for the community,” Mr Littleproud said.

“This funding will help to get the club back on its feet and encourage participation through purchasing new uniforms, brow bands, ties, badges and a Club Flag.

“The Alpha Pony Club provides the only winter sporting activity for children in the Alpha district, and is a great way to bring younger families and the community together.

“Through providing uniforms to members, the Club will help to encourage participation and maximise attendance at rally days and gymkhanas.

“This is great news for the Alpha community and the volunteers who worked hard behind the scenes to get the Pony Club back up and running for the community.

“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 6 of the Stronger Communities Programme has seen $150,000 in Federal Government funding made available to Maranoa community groups. 14 projects were funded in this round.

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