Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George has announced a natural disaster grant of $3,580 for repairs to flood damage at Murwillumbah Showground.

“The October 2010 floods damaged exterior walls of some buildings, the grounds and fencing on the reserve,” Mr George said.

“The funds will be paid to the showground reserve trust towards the cost of repairs.

“The showground is home to local events, sports and markets.

“That’s where the natural disaster relief scheme comes in to support the continuing function of Crown reserves that service communities across the state.

“I am pleased Government has been able to assist with paying for the repairs at this popular local reserve,” Mr George said.
