Echuca Racecourse - Letter to the Editor

Dear Sir

 

The revitalisation of the racecourse pavilion and function space is a really exciting project and a positive story for Echuca Moama.

 I commend the CEO Alex Doble, past Chair Dr John Quayle, current Chair Troy and his committee for their vision.

The Echuca Racing Club contributed $237,656, while Racing Victoria and Country Racing Victoria contributed $140,000.

The Victorian Liberal-Nationals Coalition in government was pleased to contribute dollar for dollar funding with a commitment of $377,000.

The new facility is a major boost to the racing club, the tourism and wedding industries, and to the Echuca Moama community in general.

A classic example of the community working hand in hand with a government who understood what makes country communities tick.

Yours sincerely

HON PETER WALSH MP
