River Fes­ti­val

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.

In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre

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.

❝no There are real rules; the only limit is your own imag­i­na­tion.
