A plaque is mounted on the front of the Grandstand commemorates the workmanship of contractors, Messrs. G Kyburz and Son in completing the grandstand.

Towards the end of 1924 fire destroyed the grandstand and with only nine weeks until the 1925 Show a brave decision was made by the President Mr G Purvis-Smith to construct a new concrete structure. The contractors, Messrs. G Kyburz and Son took up the challenge and had the magnificent grandstand erected and almost complete within seven weeks.
