Showground funds boost

THE Yeppoon and District Show Society will receive $19,397 for improvements and upgrades to the showground.

The society has also been allocated $2050 from the Gambling Community Benefit Funding, to buy a second arena for the 2010 Dressage Competition, to be held at Yeppoon showground on Saturday, May 29.
