New $1 million pavilion funded in Seymour
A new and improved Seymour Agricultural Pavilion will give community groups and regional event groups access to a state-of-the-art facility for their events in the township.
Mitchell Shire Council will fund $487,000 for the project while Federal Member for Murray Damian Drum MP announced a $487,000 grant through the Building Better Regions Fund for the project which will replace two aged pavilions at the end of their lives on Wednesday 20 March.
Events like the Seymour Alternative Farming Expo and the Seymour Show will be benefited by the upgrades with more space and more access. There will be more storage space included in the design of the new pavilion.
Other community groups like Seymour Riding Develops Abilities and Seymour Cutting Club will be able to use the facility for their events which is not currently possible.
This new facility also makes Kings Park a more viable option for more regional event organisers to host events in the municipality
Mitchell Shire Mayor Councillor Bill Chisholm said the new facility would be a welcomed addition to the township of Seymour.
“Opening a space for all community groups to run their events is an important part of what we want to do for our community. With more space and more storage, groups will now have more access to top facilities,” he said.
“This new facility also makes Kings Park a more viable option for more regional event organisers to host events in the municipality. Other groups and event organisers may want to bring a fresh, new event to the region which would only boost our region’s economy.
“I would like to thank the Damian Drum MP and the Federal Government for helping to fund this important project.”
Construction is slated to begin following meetings with local committees, groups and event organisers.
