In 2004 our club members began developing our clubrooms and Poultry Pavilion to facilitate Shows, at the old Bacchus Marsh Showgrounds.
This project commenced as an old rusted shed, unlined and a very unlevelled dirt floor. Members put in long hours, not only doing everything from concreting to plastering, fitting Kitchen, fitting Dining and Meeting Rooms to erecting display pens, whilst holding fundraisers to finance this work.
Working Bees and Fundraisers are on a continual basis to allow our Club to provide these amenities for the greater "Poultry Community" to congregate and enjoy!
