Vandals have damaged the Bemboka Showground, only a few weeks out from the town’s show.
Bemboka Show Society president Don Spence said sometime on Saturday night someone had driven into the showground and left half a dozen doughnuts in the main horse arena.
He said the plan was to meet this week to figure out what work needed to be done.
“For people bringing horses to the show, there will be no danger to horses or riders,” he said.
“We will do the necessary things we need to do to have the grounds in top shape come the 10th of March.”
The showgrounds have been locked in the past due to damage caused by vandals, but Mr Spence said that was not something the society wanted to do again as there were many responsible members of the community who needed to use it.
“A few people used the showground as a place to put their horses when we had the Yankees Gap fire,” he said.
He said the grounds had been looking very good and it was disappointing to see vandals damage it, especially so close to the show.
“Maybe they’d like to volunteer their services with a whippersnipper at the working bee and get rid of a bit of energy that way,” he said.
Volunteers are welcome at the working bee on Saturday, February 23 from 9am at the showground.
Bring a whippersnipper, push mower and gloves
