$45,000 SHOW BAGS FOR NORTHERN RIVERS SHOW ORGANISERS.

The much-loved country shows of Grafton and Maclean in May and Casino and Kyogle in October could each win new Nationals in NSW Government grants of up to $45000 to get up and running in a 2022 COVID-safe way, Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis has announced.
“Grants from our $5 million Country Shows Support Package can not only be used for ensuring shows are COVID Safe, but also for subsidising stall fees, equipment hire, upgrading show facilities or engaging locally-based artists or musicians,” Mr Gulaptis said.
The MP said people who haven’t been to their showground for a while will be very pleasantly surprised by what they discover.
“Through the pandemic downtime, the Nationals in NSW Government have been partnering with local show societies to deliver a series of terrific upgrades including a raft of improvements at Maclean, new toilets, seating and lighting at Grafton and fully funding Richmond Valley Council Mayor Robert Mustow’s ambitious master plan for Casino Showground.”

Deputy Premier and Nationals Leader Paul Toole said the Country Shows Support Package would provide certainty to show organisers and give them the confidence to lock in suppliers, hire equipment and purchase goods.
“It’s been a tough few years for country shows, with drought, bushfires, storms, floods and COVID-19 disrupting plans, but as they say, the show must go on and these grants will help make that happen,” Mr Toole said.
The $5 million Country Shows Support Package is part of the Nationals in NSW Government’s $200 million Regional Recovery Package, which will deliver long term support and certainty for the regions as the state reopens.
Applications open on Tuesday, 14 December 2021 and close on Friday, 29 April 2022, or when funding is exhausted. For further information, including program guidelines and eligibility criteria, go to: www.nsw.gov.au/CountryShows.

Upcoming Improvements on McDonalds Bridge Road

Upcoming Improvements on McDonalds Bridge Road

 

Daily users of McDonalds Bridge Road will be pleased to hear that further improvement work is scheduled to commence in August, weather permitting.

An investment of over $2 million will fund the repair of approximately four kilometres of the road. This project will include widening the shoulders from the base of the hill east of Edenville Road to Stratheden Road. Upon completion, the entire width of the road will be resealed.

The scope of the project also includes widening and installing scour rock protection on culverts, setting up guideposts, and cleaning table drains.

Richmond Valley Council‘s General Manager, Vaughan Macdonald, emphasised the Council’s commitment to restoring the local transportation network to meet community expectations.

Mr. Macdonald highlighted that the Council is working collaboratively with the NSW and Australian governments to not only restore but also enhance the road network’s resilience, supported by funding from all three levels of government.

“The safety and efficiency of people and freight movements on our roads are paramount,” said Mr. Macdonald. “The floods of 2022 resulted in a road repair bill exceeding $100 million. Unfortunately, our road network faced additional strain over the past eight months, with record rainfall causing extensive pothole damage.

“While significant progress has been made in restoring our local roads and ensuring their safety and efficiency, Council relies heavily on government funding to repair and upgrade our damaged roads to a more resilient standard.

“Despite these challenges, our capital program acknowledges the crucial role of local roads and infrastructure in building resilient, connected communities and supporting economic growth in the Richmond Valley.”

Casino Truck Show to Auction Custom-Made Bar for Charity

 

The North Coast Petroleum Casino Truck Show organising committee is thrilled to announce the auction of a custom-made bar to raise funds for charity.

Generously donated by Queensland-based Moore Trailers, the 2.4m x 2.4m bar is crafted from steel with mirror stainless ends, designed to resemble the rear end of a trailer. Valued at $6,500, this versatile bar is perfect for entertaining and recreational use.

Enhancing the auction, Engel Australia has contributed a 95-litre upright fridge valued at $1,699, ensuring this auction is a highlight of the event.

The auction will take place on Saturday, 3 August, at the Mafeking Lamp roundabout at 2:45 pm, just before the trophy presentation. The Casino Truck Show extends gratitude to Moore Trailers’ Scott Gollan and Engel Australia’s Jason Dwyer for their support.

For 2024, men’s health charity Movember has been chosen as the Casino Truck Show charity partner. Movember, a leading men’s health organisation, focuses on mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer. Since 2003, Movember has funded over 12,500 projects, engaging more than five million participants worldwide.

In 2023, the Casino Truck Show donated $10,000 to local charities, including the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, Casino Soup Kitchen, and Jumbunna Community Preschool.

Mark your calendars for the 2024 North Coast Petroleum Casino Truck Show, set to take place in the Casino CBD on Saturday, 3 August. This must-attend event for truck enthusiasts will showcase innovation, performance, and community spirit.

The festivities kick off with the street parade at 10 am, followed by the trophy presentation at 3 pm. Entertainment will feature performances by Mossy Rocks and the Tony Q Band on two stages, along with kid-friendly activities like amusement rides and face painting. Exhibitors will display industry-related products and services.
