THE new horse and cattle pavillion at the Murrumburrah Harden Showground was officially opened and named last weekend with the new facility being named after one of the driving forces behind the project, Neville Alcorn.
Show Society secretary Jan Young said Mr Alcorn played a major role in getting the new pavillion built and that it was very apt that the building was named after him.
The pavillion is 50 metres by 50 metres and has 42 stalls for cattle and horses. The building cost around $90,000.
She said that not only would the new pavillion be good for the Show Society but the showground itself as it added a new dimension to the showground.
The pavillion opening was held in conjunction with the Show Society's monster auction to raise funds for this year's show.
The auction raised about $2,000.
