ECHUCA’S New Year’s Night trots have been boosted by $20,000 of funding supported by the Victorian Government.
Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp announced $10,000 would go to supporting the meet, with another $10,000 from the Echuca Harness Racing Club and Harness Racing Victoria.
The event has plenty of fun for the family, with entertainment, music, face painting and a jumping castle. Gepp said the government, which has contributed more than $287,000 to the club since 2014, was proud to support an event supporting local jobs.
EHRC acting secretary Hope Gamble said the club was grateful for the government’s support and looked forward to more events in 2018.
