NEW PA VAN FOR SEC
The State Equestrian Centre is pleased to announce that work has begun on a brand new PA van for the venue. This was made possible by the McGowan Government’s Local Jobs Program grant where EWA was granted $63,000 by Jessica Shaw MLA, Member for Swan Hills.
The 6m x 2.4m purpose-built van is being constructed by All-Ways Caravan Hire and the PA equipment is being supplied by PAV. It will include large viewing windows, A/C, charging stations, a small fridge, lighting, storage space and a large bench. The audio system will include radio mics, headsets, 4 roof-mounted speakers plus portable speakers.These upgrades will offer a much better environment for our valued SEC volunteers and clients.
On arrival of the new van, the old Horseland PA van will be refurbished by All-Ways to get a couple more years of service, so in the future, two vans will be available for event organisers to use.
EWA would like to thank Jessica for her support with this project and we look forward to the arrival of the new PA van.
