Scoring more sporting events at Bulldog Park

June 25, 2021

Attracting feature games to Bulldog Park is the main aim for the Chinchilla Rugby League Club, which received $19,490 to upgrade the outdoor scoreboard, Maranoa MP David Littleproud said today.

“Bulldog Park is an important multi-sport facility which hosts various sporting development courses and activities, and in turn attracts participants, spectators and visitors to Chinchilla,” Mr Littleproud said.

“This funding will allow the Chinchilla Rugby League Football Club to refurbish the existing scoreboard at Bulldog Park and purchase an outdoor LED Matrix display board.

“These improved facilities at Bulldog Park will attract feature games to Chinchilla, whereby contributing to a more viable and vibrant community.

“This is great news for the Chinchilla community and the volunteers who are working hard behind the scenes to provide a valuable facility to the community.

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

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