$4,062 Stronger Communities Grant for Narromine Agricultural Society
A grant of $4,062 through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme will assist in the purchase of semi-portable sheep yards for the Narromine Agricultural Show Society.
The Member for Parkes, Mark Coulton, said entries for the Society’s yard dog trials had grown significantly and in past years, organisers have had to borrow panels and yards from local farmers.
He said the grant will allow the committee to buy their own set of semi-portable sheep yards to run the Macquarie Valley Yard Dog Championships. 
“This year the committee ran a regional championship for the first time and it will continue to grow for many years to come. 
“This will enable Narromine’s Agricultural Society to continue to present an important rural event, which brings visitors to the town, contributing to a more vibrant and more viable community,” he said.
The overall cost of the project is $8,124 with the Stronger Communities Programme contributing half of the overall cost.
