Club supporters can enjoy home matches in style with the Deniliquin Rams Football and Netball Club repairing their grandstand and seating at the Hardinge St oval.

The Rams received a grant of $25,000 through the Deniliquin Community Group in September last year, as part of the fifth round of grants to be dispersed into the Deniliquin community.

Rams treasurer Sue Morris said the grandstand area had been repaired and painted, while concrete had been extended around the stand and other spectator areas.

‘‘The area has been gratefully welcomed and appreciated by all club members, spectators and visitors to our club,’’ she said.

‘‘We intend to use the remainder of the grant to install additional steel framework on the grandstand to accommodate extra sponsor advertising signs.’’

The Hardinge St oval facilities are also utilised by the Deniliquin Little Athletics Club, and primary and high school groups for out of school sporting activities.

Grants are provided by Bendigo Bank through its community banking scheme to the DCG, which then decides which groups receive the grants through an application process.

Commissions earned on Bendigo Bank accounts linked to the DCG are donated to the group at no cost to the customer.

The DCG has donated a total of $330,000 to various local organisations and clubs since its formation in October 2007.
