I write to acknowledge the wonderful work of the Riverland Field Days Inc committee and volunteer team.
Despite some challenging weather, this year’s Riverland Field Days was yet again a brilliant event.
After two pandemic related cancellations, the Riverland’s community spirit and enthusiasm was back on display for the much-anticipated return of the Field Days.
The Riverland Field Days contributes so much to the community from an economic and social point of view. It’s no wonder that more than 11,000 people braved the challenging conditions to attend.
This is why the Coalition Government supported Agricultural Shows and Field Day’s in regional communities across Australia despite pandemic forced cancellations. Indeed, the Riverland Field Days committee received $140,000 across two rounds of the Supporting Agricultural Shows & Field Days Program to enable them to remain financially viable and bounce back in 2022.
Thank you to all who took the time to speak with me and my staff either at my mobile electorate office or as I was visiting other stall holders.
Once again, well done to all involved for staging another successful Riverland Field Days.
