Bush spirit lives

Central and North Burnett Times - - AROUND TOWN - Noel Thomp­son

THE bush spirit is alive and well in the North Bur­nett and it was all on dis­play over the past few weeks.

Eidsvold’s Bush Spirit Fes­ti­val had the com­mu­nity in­volved in horse­man­ship, her­itage and great com­pany.

When a com­mu­nity can get to­gether and have a day of cel­e­bra­tion of the bush it’s a re­minder of why we live in the North Bur­nett and say it with pride.

For me it is a feel­ing of be­long­ing and a feel­ing of safety in the knowl­edge Eidsvold peo­ple will al­ways stand to­gether.

In the same vein, Gayn­dah’s Or­ange Fes­ti­val saw the com­mu­nity have a week­end of fun in a fes­tive at­mos­phere cel­e­brat­ing not only the cit­rus in­dus­try, but the fact liv­ing in Gayn­dah is some­thing to be proud of.

Con­grat­u­la­tions and thank you to the or­gan­is­ers – your ef­forts were ap­pre­ci­ated by all.
