Oberon Showground will use a $21,674 grant from the NSW Government’s Crown Reserve Improvement Fund on fencing.

Minister for Lands and Forestry and Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the funding would improve security at the showground.

“Oberon Showground is used by a number of local community groups for events, meetings and fundraisers,” Mr Toole said.

“The grant will be used to continue installing security fencing around the perimeter of the grounds.

“This will help to improve safety for the groups who use the showgrounds, as well as protect the buildings and facilities.”

“This year we’ve made a record investment into Crown land with more than $20 million in grants and loans being provided across the state,” Mr Toole said.

The NSW Government has invested $115 million across seven years into Crown land projects.
