Current news from the BVRC…

While 2017 commenced with a flying start for the BVRC, there is a current looming issue that we are working through together. On Tuesday 7th February 2017, our Board Chairman Paul Kirkpatrick was approached by the Bendigo Advertiser to make comment in relation to the current federal and council funding cuts that is threatening the future of our vital organisation.
