The State Equestrian Centre gets a face lift!

Have you noticed how great The State Equestrian Centre is looking lately?

A small team of volunteers from The Work Depot Midland have been visiting the SEC every Tuesday to assist the grounds staff with jobs such as mowing, painting, and gardening. Having already completed projects such as cleaning up the front carpark and garden beds, trimming the trees around the stables, painting fence posts, and painting the front of the stable blocks, the crew is keen to make a start on replacing the wire fence behind the limestone carpark, which they intend to complete this coming Wednesday.

The Work Depot is a community work experience project. The Work Depot Participation Supervisor, Mike Shellabear says "This is an awesome opportunity for the long term unemployed to gain a variety of skills, which will help them rejoin the work force. The crew are taking such pride in the work they are doing here at The State Equestrian Center. It is really lifting their self esteem".

Equestrian WA is grateful to have such a great group of helpers working to make the SEC a safer and more aesthetically pleasing venue for the equestrian community to enjoy.

Next time you are at the SEC and see the Work Depot crew, make sure you thank them for their hard work and improvements to the centre.
