Res­i­dents rel­ish their chance at show fame

Central and North Burnett Times - - THE BIGGENDEN SHOW -

AGED res­i­dents at Biggenden’s Multi-Pur­pose Health Ser­vice have been busy pre­par­ing for the up­com­ing town show.

On Mon­day the res­i­dents made tomato rel­ish while Bob Ber­rie wrote a poem for the po­etry sec­tion high­light­ing the cen­te­nary of the Lighthorse.

The res­i­dents have put the chal­lenge out to the com­mu­nity and have been busy and so far have dec­o­rated four rub­ber thongs.

This Mon­day, the cooks will be in the kitchen mak­ing plum pud­dings. Col Barnard and Des Ber­rie are hop­ing to fol­low up on their Mt Perry Show suc­cess where they won sec­ond prize from seven other en­tries.

The res­i­dents hope to en­ter the flo­ral art and cut flow­ers sec­tions af­ter grow­ing their own flow­ers at the fa­cil­ity and the women have been busy pre­par­ing their hand­craft. The res­i­dents were re­cently given some silkies and hope next year they can en­ter the poul­try sec­tion.
