STAWELL - Stawell Riding for the Disabled has once again expressed its gratitude to Stawell Gold Mines for their ongoing support.
The organisation is delighted with the support from General Manager Troy Cole and the many staff who have assisted.
Stawell RDA is in the process of relocating from Frewstal Park to the Stawell Pony Club grounds. Mr Cole and staff from Stawell Gold Mines have provided machinery and equipment, as well as many hours of in kind work, to facilitate the move.
Several other individuals, businesses and organisations have also assisted with the move and their assistance has been greatly appreciated as well.
Mr Cole visited Stawell RDA and accepted certificates of appreciation from Skene Street student Holly, during the weekly riding program. The certificates were in appreciation of all the work Mr Cole and Stawell Gold Mines have done for the relocation and installation of the loading ramp from Frewstal Park to the Pony Club grounds.
Stawell Pony Club and Riding for the Disabled are in the first stages of a planning development for the Pony Club grounds, fur use by equestrian interests in the area.
Combined equestrian interests provide a greater scope for funding and development into the future.
Stawell RDA has also expressed its gratitude to Frewstal and General Manager Greg Nicholls for their support to the organisation over a long period of time.
This support continues with donations of sausages for RDA fundraising activities, for which the group is very grateful.
The Frew family have been great supporters of Stawell RDA and members thank them very much for the use of the grounds and sheds, which allowed RDA to deliver their weekly riding program preceding the move to the Pony Club grounds.
The harness program was also carried out from these premises for many years.
