Prizemoney to be won for junk sculptors
JUNK Sculpture Competition will form part of the Theodore River Festival in late September.
Budding sculpture artists are invited to gather up discarded, abandoned and worn out “stuff’’ and combine it in surprising and unexpected ways to build a piece of sculpture.
There are no real rules; the only limit is your own imagination.
Your sculpture can include timbers, plastics, metals, fabrics, and found objects, anything you can get your hands on.
It can be held together by any means – wiring, welding, knotting, gluing. Sculptures can be lodged at the Theodore RSL on Thursday September 28, between 10am and 1pm. Other arrangements can be made by contacting Tracey Hewitt on 4993 1326.
There will be prize money for the Junk Sculpture Competition. Categories include Best Junk Sculpture: Under 12, Best Junk Sculpture: 12 yrs to Under 18, Best Junk Sculpture, Viewer’s Choice.
New bus stop
THEODORE’S first official bus stop is now under construction. Council started work early this week by pulling up old concrete and pavers.
The entire area will have coloured or tinted concrete with a seat.
The area will be a no parking zone during bus times expected to be Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3-4pm and Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday 10-11am.
WITH the influx of grey nomads, the centre has been getting a large number of visitors.
Centre volunteer Rod Barnard said one day last week he had 62 visitors.
The grey nomads’ numbers are definitely on the increase.
Grey nomads are making Theodore a must stop location.
Most days, Junction Park is at capacity with the overflow being taken up at the Showgrounds.
The downside is the summer months, when visitors not following the grey nomad path often bypass Theodore due to lack of signage.
Apparently the bureaucracy has an issue with signage grants not being approved.
