Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

AT THE re­cent meet­ing of the Bur­nett sub-cham­ber re­tir­ing pres­i­dent Colleen Ben­ham was thanked for her 15 years of ser­vice.

New ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers are Mal­colm Beres­ford who has taken on the role of pres­i­dent and Dar­ren Geissler, vice-pres­i­dent.

The Bur­nett sub­cham­ber’s pur­pose is to sup­port its seven show so­ci­eties of Mt Perry, Monto, Eidsvold, Mun­dub­bera, Gayn­dah, Biggen­den and Tee­bar.

“We are one of 11 sub-cham­bers in Queens­land,” Dot Hamil­ton OAM, of Eidsvold Show So­ci­ety said.

“Any prob­lems be­ing ex­pe­ri­enced by our mem­bers are taken to the Queens­land Cham­ber of Agri­cul­tural So­ci­eties.”

Each year sub­cham­ber fi­nals are held in a dif­fer­ent town and next year they will be held in Mun­dub­bera in June.

Win­ners in the var­i­ous cat­e­gories then go on to com­pete at the Bris­bane Ex­hi­bi­tion.
