The Lockyer Newspaper Article

An update from our President (14 August 2020)

On behalf of the Gatton Show Society I thank you for visiting our updated website and hope you can easily find the things that you are interested in on this site. Over the following weeks we will be continuing to add information and photos so that those that access our website can enjoy the experience.  Many hours of work have already gone into what you can see and a big thanks to Lochlan our Sites Coordinator and IT person and to Carrie from Scenic Rim Design.

Even though we weren’t able to hold our 2020 Show, this has given us the opportunity to update our website and start to get ready for our 2021 Show. The Show Society has been very fortunate to receive two major grants in the last few months and will be very busy getting the projects organised and up and running. The major grant was for Electrical work on the show grounds and was part of the Federal Government Agricultural Shows $20 million Grant Funding. The other was a grant for $35,000 from the Gambling Community Fund to be used for the installation of Rainwater Tanks, Safety Fencing on the Loading Ramp and equipment for the Woodchop Section.

Also a big thanks to the Lockyer Valley Regional Council on the shifting of the cement bollards from one part of the showgrounds to up in front of the Cattle Pavilion for the Judging Rings, this will help alleviate safety issues in this area.

If you have some spare time we are always looking for volunteers to be become part of the Show movement and as we prepare for the 2021 Show I would like to thank all who have been involved over the years and look forward to catching up at the 2021 Show.

Any enquires please contact the secretary@gattonshowsociety.com.au

2020 Gatton Show cancelled

The Management Committee of the Gatton Show Society Inc wishes to inform the public, sponsors, key stakeholders, members, volunteers, exhibitors and competitors that the 2020 Gatton Show has been cancelled due to uncertainty and the unknown that lies ahead surrounding the Coronavirus, Covid-19. Read more.

What will this mean for Gatton Show Society?

With the Lockyer Valley Regional Council also providing a sum of money along with the grant it will allow for a new power line into the grounds, a number of 3 phase power outlets in the carpark and some extra lighting on the grounds. Also some bitumen upgrades to roads and parking will be carried out.

This will be of a benefit to all users of the Gatton Showgrounds.

A huge thank you to Trevor Beckingham for his work in putting the proposal together and to the Lockyer Valley Regional Council for the support they have given that has helped us in gaining the grant.

Also thank you to the Federal Government for supporting the Show movement which contributes so much to communities throughout Australia.
