Putting on the big show
BIGGENDEN’s show pavilion was its usual spectacular self showcasing the district’s creativity.
Society president Bill Wilson said the annual 116th show last weekend was a mixed bag with some sections down while others were up.
“The crowd was also down a little but I wouldn’t know by how much until gate takings are finalised,” he said
The Saturday night entertainment was a hit with patrons especially Matthew Barker and his band.
The Bundy Bear chainsaw sculptured by BJ Jentry drew some spirited bidding from four keen buyers. Successful bidder was the Grand Hotel paying $2550.
Looking towards next year’s show MrWilson who has been involved since 1973 said the committee badly needed new blood.
“Biggenden only had a show this year because treasurer Allison Chellingworth stepped in and also took on the secretary’s job,” he said.
“We need more young people involved – they are the future life of the show.”
