Great Golf Club Family Food Fair
The Family Food Fair. What a wonderful initiative taking place on the Golf Club lawns from 4.00pm to 10pm last Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
With our towns swelling by thousands of holiday makers over Easter, we were provided with an excellent new event for young families as well as teenagers and adults of all ages.
Food stalls catered for the hundreds of participants with pizza, paella, Texan BBQ, burgers, salads, wine and cheese, and much more – with all catering by the club’s own staff.
Activities included a kids’ zone with a giant sand pit, jumping castle, face painting, croquet, balloons and colouring sheets.
Then, added to all the above, were the live entertainment and beautiful Autumn weather making for a fabulous experience for everyone.
Congratulations to President Gill Cunningham and those directors who gave their time over Easter, to CEO Richard Hogg and most of all, the fabulous staff of the Golf Club who worked tirelessly in the planning stages and the three event days to ensure the success of this venture.
Well done. I certainly hope this becomes a permanent Easter event for our towns.
To all Yarrawonga residents
We would like to apologise for the inconvenience of the smoke that affected Yarrawonga last Wednesday night.
Each year we seek a permit to burn stubble from the previous crop in preparation for the next years planting.
In accordance with all the conditions of the permit we began burning at 5pm. Unfortunately the wind changed direction at about 7:30pm causing the smoke to settle over the town.
We begin planting on the second of April, and had been unable to obtain a permit from the relevant authorities prior to the 23rd of March.This dictates our burning off periods. Permit requirements do not allow us to begin burning until 5pm rather than at 2pm when weather conditions are more consistent and predictable.
Once again we apologise, but are working within the constraints of the permit that is issued.
Chris and Libby Dowling.
