IMPROVED FACILITIES AT CIRCULAR HEAD PONY CLUB

The cross country course and show jumping equipment at the Circular Pony Club are set to be upgraded to enable the Club to continue to meet national safety standards.

Federal Member for Braddon Justine Keay said, “The Circular Head Pony Club will receive $18,500 in funding from the Braddon Stronger Communities Program to upgrade their cross country course and show jumping equipment.

“This $40,000 project will see a much improved experience for locals and visitors to the Pony Club.

“Current facilities are at a sub-standard level and are only just meeting Australian safety standards for pony club events.

“Following completion it will be one of the best courses available in the state that should lead to increased competitions at the club with local social and economic spin offs.

“The project is yet another example of the community spirit for which Circular Head is known.

“A number of organisations have come on board to support the project including Pony Club Tasmania, West Winds Pty Ltd, Fairview Dairies, Nyoki Dairies and Smithton Plant  Nursery.

“Pony Club members have also pledged approximately 130 hours of volunteer labour to undertake the work required.

Justine Keay said, “The Braddon Stronger Communities Program is administered by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science and the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development.

“Applications were assessed by an independent community panel who found this project was one that warranted support.”
