In the second half to the year MELSA Rockhampton Inc was successful in placing a funding application for a Ride-on Mower seen here to the left.

This mower allows the members to easily mow the grassed edges around the track much shorter than the normal council maintained length of the park.

This greatly improves safety for visiting public and passengers riding on the trains during our monthly running days and other private bookings.

The purchase of this Ride-On would not have been possible with out the R.R.C support and Community assistance program and their 50% funding of our club's new asset.
In January we had a visit from Councillor Rose Swadling Chair:Communities Committee.

The visit was to say thank you for all the on going support MELSA Rockhampton Inc receives from RRC.

From that visit Councillor Swadling made a donation toward assisting MELSA Rockhampton to produce an advertising banner pictured to the right which advertises our public running days and website to the wider community and visiting public.

In the second half to the year MELSA Rockhampton Inc was successful in placing a funding application for the Club’ s Wagon Refurbishment Project.

This funding allowed us to pad our wagon seats. This improves the comfort and accessiblilty of passengers riding on the trains.

Some of our newly padded wagons are picture here to the left.
