Congratulations Wangaratta Turf Club - Letter to the Editor
Thursday 3 August 2017
I wish to congratulate the Wangaratta Turf Club on receiving a $2.4 million grant from the Federal Coalition Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.
This funding will allow the club’s $6.2 million dollar stage 2 development upgrade to begin and will build training facilities, event space and accommodation.
I was honoured to be present this morning when Nationals Senator for Victoria Bridget McKenzie made the announcement at the racecourse.
I also commend Nationals Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash for her support of this project through the Building Better Regions Fund.
I have worked with Wangaratta Turf Club chief executive Paul Hoysted and his board for many years as the club has gone from strength to strength and I’m extremely pleased to see this hard work and vision rewarded with this funding.
This development will create economic growth, employment and a niche facility in Wangaratta.
The Nationals are committed to the growth of regional Victoria and I look forward to Wangaratta Turf Club’s plans now becoming a reality with this funding.
