The Stockden Memorial Stand commemorates George William Stockden (1912 - 1997).

George William Stockden worked at the family home until his father died, by which time he had a little land and money of his own. When the family home was sold George became an auctioneer for six years, then sold out and bought into a hotel until 1950. He made enough money to buy more land and stayed in the grazing business until 1974 when he sold out again and retired. For many years George rode and showed horses at horse-shows. He remained a bachelor all his life, and died on 18 July 1997.
