Fundraising for Walden Park
It may not appear obvious to anyone on the outside, but work has been steadily progressing for the project to restore the speedway venue at Walden Park in Dry Well Road, Corrigin.
One of the big hurdles to be overcome was the lack of funds to buy fittings and fixtures to repair the toilets. Adequate toilet facilities must be provided before the venue can be approved by the Health authorities and before any events can be arranged.
Attempts to obtain a major grant for the project have so far been unsuccessful but, rest assured, we will keep trying.
In the meantime, West Coast Speedcars and friends have run three successful sausage sizzles at Bunnings in Ellenbrook and we are now moving confidently ahead in getting some quotes on Public Liability Insurance. This has all been very time consuming which is why you may not have seen a lot of action happening at the track.
In fact, the last time we were at the track was to film a short video clip as part of our entry into the Holden Home Ground Advantage grants scheme. If you haven’t seen that clip yet, you might enjoy a good laugh by visiting WCS HHGA on YouTube.
We are always looking for people to help with fundraising or contribute to the cause in whatever way they can so please let us know how you might be able to help. Contact the secretary on 0488 553 167.
Australian Speedway Drivers and Riders Association Incorporated wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year.
