Save Our Show - S.O.S. on the weekend of 23rd and 24th January.
Show committee member Mary said "Our normal Agricultural Show has had to be changed to some extent because of the restrictions of the Covid rules. There will be no indoor events, which means all the Pavilion entries have had to be cancelled.
"The rules mean that there can only be 40 people in the buildings at any one time and they must move in the one direction. We don’t have enough volunteer workers to control this over 2 days. However , we can have a large crowd outdoors!
Entry is free ( we hope for some donations at the gate !)
The Horse events are going ahead in the ring , over the 2 days , and there are already over 100 entries for the Campdraft Cut Out Competition on the Saturday evening.
The Poultry Show will be held on Saturday , and the Animal Nursery will be in place on Saturday in the new Emergency Animal Shelter . The Pet Show will be held at 2.00pm that day. There will be food available at the Canteen ( lunch and evening meal Saturday, lunch Sunday) and Coffee van and Icecream van . C.W.A. members will have cakes on sale - lots of cakes.
Side Shows will be operating , and there will be a Jumping Castle there on Sunday. We plan to run competitions and fun events for children throughout the 2 days.
The band The Shack Shakers are playing on Saturday , starting at 6.00pm. Graeme Scobie is providing great music on Sunday.
The Antique Tractor Club and The Vintage Car Club are coming.
On Sunday , the main event is the Car Boot Sale , starting at 9.00 o’clock. There will be Market Stalls there too. There is a $15.00 fee for stall holders and for each car participating in the car boot sale.
We are hoping to see a large crowd as we need support. The Show was cancelled at the last minute in January 2020 because of the bushfires, and now we are working out how to run it with Covid ! We are definitely not giving up!"
