Scott Buchholz, the Member for Wright, has announced the Morrison Liberal National Government will invest $250,000 to upgrade the Beaudesert Showgrounds, demonstrating the Liberal National Government’s commitment to regional Australia.
“As the local member, it gives me great pride to see investment flowing to the Beaudesert community.
“The Showgrounds are an important community asset, and thanks to the Liberal National Government’s sensible management of the Budget, we’re able to invest into the community.
“Without a strong budget, important community infrastructure can’t be upgraded and funded,” Mr Buchholz said.
Secretary of the Beaudesert Show Society, Andrea McFarlane, thanked Scott Buchholz for delivering for Beaudesert.
“Thanks to Scott Buchholz, the Beaudesert Show Society is able to move forward with important upgrades at the Beaudesert Showgrounds.
“This investment enables us to fast-track several major infrastructure projects within the Showgrounds. These include restorations to the roof of the historical grandstand and building more permanent shade structures around the grounds – along with other projects as well.
“The Beaudesert Show Grounds are privately owned by the Society. These Community Development Grants ensure that we have the ability to build and maintain community infrastructure,” Mrs McFarlane said.
Scott Buchholz said the Showgrounds are home to great events, including the Beaudesert Show, Campdraft, Lifeline fundraising events, and many more.
