Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - FRONT PAGE - Har­vey-Wa­roona Re­porter.

More than 10,000 peo­ple flocked to the Har­vey Agri­cul­tural Show on Sun­day in beau­ti­ful autumn weather. The hall was awash in colour with art and craft, pro­duce, cook­ing and flow­ers. Cook­er­nup green thumb Lois Black­burn pulled off a hat-trick, win­ning cham­pion rose for the third year in a row.

THE new one day show for­mat proved successful with num­bers sim­i­lar to last year’s two-day event.

Har­vey Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Dom Faz­zo­lari said the com­mit­tee was happy with the day and the num­bers.

“The af­ter­noon was a bit quiet but af­ter 5pm it was really packed,” he said.

“The night en­ter­tain­ment and the fire­works drew a big crowd and peo­ple en­joyed sit­ting down in front of the stage with food out­lets nearby.”

The Pres­i­dent’s Tro­phy for most points in the hall and the Pa­tron’s Tro­phy for most points of all sec­tions went to long-time com­peti­tor Pam Sharp, of Har­vey, while Chris­tine Fielder, also of Har­vey, took out run­ner-up in the hall.

Bill Bal­jeu, of Boy­anup, won cham­pion bird and was run­ner-up for most points in all sec­tions.

In the stud cat­tle sec­tion, Ven­turon Charo­lais, from Boyup Brook, en­joyed great suc­cess win­ning supreme cow, supreme bull and the cov­eted Al­coa beef clas­sic.
