Tired infrastructure at the Grafton Showground is receiving a well deserved coat of paint.
Carol McDonald, Honorary Treasurer of the Clarence Pastoral and Agricultural Society (C.P. and A Society Ltd), said that the Society together with Bunnings Grafton manager Craig Tapping has arranged with Dulux paint to donate 200 litres of paint, for the painting of the tiered ring side seating around the main arena, at Grafton Showground.
“Monarch/Australian Brushware has assisted with the donation of paint brushes and paint pots,” said Ms McDonald.
“C.P. and A Society Ltd is a group of volunteers that run the Grafton Show and are Trustees of the Grafton Showground.
“The running and maintenance of the grounds for the community is a huge task and we are grateful for the assistance of the Work For The Dole clients from Tursa Employment, that are a godsend for the grounds.”
The Grafton Show will be celebrating their 150th Anniversary on April 15-16 next year.
“The Governor General has accepted to be our Guest of Honour and open the show so we thought we needed to pretty up the place – well try,” she said.
