Funding Boost for Bulls Project

October 18, 2017

A grant of $200,000 has been received from the JBS Dudding Charitable Trust for the proposed Bulls Community Centre.

Mayor Andy Watson, said he was delighted to receive this grant from the Trust. “The Dudding Trust has, since its inception, given out millions of dollars to community organisations in the Rangitikei. This grant now means we can confidently move ahead with the Bulls project. The proposed Centre will put Bulls on the map with its innovative but practical design and provide a facility for the Bulls and wider Community to use and be proud of.”

Detailed design drawings and specifications are currently being done by Architecture Workshop and it is hoped tenders will be called early in 2018.

Mayor Andy said “a number of other applications submitted for this project have been turned down as they were not seen as regionally significant so this funding boost is very welcome news.”
