A Beaufort community club is set to receive some much needed resources thanks to the work of prisoners at the Langi Kal Kal prison.
The BlueLight Motorcycle Club, which operates every third Sunday between April and November, will benefit from a repaired water truck which will enable the club to mitigate dust during the warmer months.
The club has been running for a number of years, however has seen participation rise in the past 12 months.
Club president and police inspector Steve Towers said the truck will go a long way in keeping young riders safe.
"Because it's a clay track it can often get pretty dusty, which just makes things very difficult and at times unsafe of our riders," he said.
"This truck will allow us to water the track and just make things a lot safer."
Mr Towers said the club, which often hosts close to 70 children between 5 and 17, is a great way to get kids involved in activities and interacting with police.
"It's really positive, everyone is having fun and getting out within their community.
"I rode bikes a lot as a kid and I know it kept me out of trouble, so to be able to provide that to the community in Beaufort while also allowing kids to talk and work with police members is great.
"We want to be able to provide the best service possible to the community to encourage them to get involved."
The water truck will be presented to the club next Thursday by Langi Kal Kal prison general manager Catherine Darbyshire, with the club also donating $500 to the local CFA.
