DELUNGRA Australian Stock Horse Border Branch members were able to tick off another wish list item when they received a $4647 grant to purchase a new public address system.
The Border Branch and the Delungra Yard Dog Trials Committee host several weekend-long events throughout the year that attract a number of visitors to the village.
When the two groups partnered with the ground’s trustees to revitalise the community, part of that process involved having the necessary equipment and infrastructure to run their events successfully.

Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall said the branch had applied for a grant and he was delighted they could now purchase their own system to use during the many various events held at the Delungra Recreation Ground.
While at the Delungra Recreation Grounds recently, Mr Marshall inspected the work being done on the new arena fence.
“Last year the trustees also received a Public Reserve Management Fund grant of $29,000 to renew the arena fence and I’m pleased to see it is well underway,” he said.
Mr Marshall said the community also hosted two campdrafts during the year, which were big events and well supported by locals and visitors.
“The Zone 8 Pony Club holds regional schools here and they hope to have a cattle dog trial once the new fence is up,” Mr Marshall said.
