Spring sun shines over the Whorouly fair

DU­BI­OUS weather re­sulted in a slow start for this year’s Whorouly Vil­lage Fair on Sun­day, but once the sun came out, so did the crowds.

“We were slightly up on crowd num­bers, with about 1500 through the gates, and we were thrilled with the day over­all,” said event or­gan­iser Jen­nifer Gar­rett.

“This year we had more mar­ket stalls than pre­vi­ous years, in­clud­ing many lo­cals and some from as far away as Mel­bourne.

“All praised the venue and the event, many said they would be back next year and most had a prof­itable day, in­clud­ing many lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions.

“Our in­au­gu­ral art and craft show in the Whorouly Li­brary Hall show­cased some won­der­ful lo­cal artists and our his­toric hall.

“The va­ri­ety of en­ter­tain­ment, from belly dancers to ukulele en­sem­bles, was again a great hit, as was the visit by the Vic­to­rian Mounted Po­lice and the Bright Ve­hi­cle Preser­va­tion So­ci­ety.

“But most of all it was a great day for the com­mu­nity of Whorouly – a chance to pro­mote our won­der­ful vil­lage and all it has to of­fer, and a chance for fam­ily and friends to catch up,” Ms Gar­rett said.

She said many peo­ple had con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of fourth an­nual Whorouly Vil­lage Fair and with­out that sup­port the event would not have been pos­si­ble.

“Thanks to ev­ery­one who played a part, big and small, in stag­ing this won­der­ful com­mu­nity event,” Ms Gar­rett added.
