RDA LIFE SKILLS BUILDING

HORSES AND MORE...LAND

 

OFFICIAL OPENING  16TH JUNE 2013

HORSES & MORE...LAND

By Kerry Souter, Administrator

 

After a lengthy period of planning and building, the latest project at RDA Tall Timbers Centre at Box Hill was officially opened on Sunday 16th June 2013 by Ray Williams MP.  The Project’s main aim is to provide a meeting room with disabled facilities to run a Life Skills and activities Program for people with disabilities.    The project was funded through a grant from the NSW Government Community Building Partnership program as well as the fundraising efforts of long time supporter Jim Moreland and donations from some very generous individuals and businesses.

 

 Jim had an opportunity to thank everyone who assisted with the project after which he joined Ray Williams to cut the ribbon.  The Centre also took the opportunity to thank Jim for all his hard work in co-ordinating the build by presenting him with a certificate and with the unveiling of the building’s new name “Horses and More...land”. 

 

Following the ceremony the guests were able to tour the new building as well as enjoy a delicious afternoon tea on a lovely winter afternoon.

The development at our Centre, which had been planned for a number of years, was officially opened in 2008.  It incorporates a new multi function building which including a designated riders’ room, a volunteers’ room, the office, the saddle rooms, kitchen and store rooms.  This will all improve the safety and smooth running of our riding program for people with disabilities.  It will also enable the carriage driving to participate at the Centre.

 

The new horse yards were completed with the financial assistance of The Rotary Club of West Pennant Hills and Cherrybrook, with the shade cover financed by a generous donation from Joan Edwards and her Aunty Phyll.

 

There will by a new 80m x 40m grass arena and the existing covered arena will be extended to competition length enabling all classifications (RDA) of riders to practise and compete.

 

The development will also include water tanks, new guttering and water saving devices.  Thank you to the Australian Government Community Water Grants for their financial assistance with this aspect of the project.

 

Thank you to Vinidex and One Steel who have assisted with the supply and construction of the new round yard.
