The Goulburn Valley Vintage Tractor and Farm Machinery Foundation received a grant of $1500 to fund the installation of power supplies for the group’s annual Vintage Tractor Rally on Easter Weekend.
Work began this week to install power and lighting to the Wunghnu Recreation Reserve’s grounds and shed.

Mrs Boschetti said installation of power and lighting would mean increasedsafety for club members and visitors attending the rally, and for other community groups who used the grounds.
‘‘It will benefit everyone who uses the ground,’’ she said.
Mrs Boschetti said club members were surprised to learn they would receive a grant after seeing the other worthy community groups who applied.
‘‘We were extra lucky,’’ she said.
Mrs Boschetti said the money was welcome relief for the club, which suffered damage during the 2011 March floods.
She said the grant would help put money back into the club after fundraising efforts were stalled by the floods.
‘‘It’s quite hard sometimes to raise money for a project,’’ she said.
‘‘It’s good to get outside money coming in.’’
The Fairleys Supa IGA Community Fund was established last year
Grants have helped groups across the community buy PA equipment, an outboard motor, community centre coffee equipment, community engagement resources and a school disability program.
