They also have bought materials to allow for replacement of the existing showground canteen roof and expansion of the canteen’s kitchen roof,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

Yass Show Society Chief Dressage Steward, Mrs Jill Doyle welcomed the funding from the State Government which will provide for a professional dressage facility for all members of the community.
