Farmer cou­ples en­joy day off

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

CANEGROWERS and their wives have been taken away from the ever-in­creas­ing stresses of their daily lives and in­dulged in a day of ul­ti­mate pam­per­ing.

While the grow­ers en­joyed a so­cial day on the bowl­ing greens at the Isis Club, their wives were down the road en­joy­ing mas­sages, mu­sic and high tea.

Canegrowers Isis Pam­per Day event co-or­di­na­tor San­dra Webb said the Wide Bay Medi­care Lo­cal-spon­sored event went so well it was hoped it would be­come an an­nual event.

“It went re­ally well. There was re­ally good feed­back,” Mrs Webb said.

“The people who were there said it was fan­tas­tic.”

Mrs Webb said the day was about get­ting farm­ers off the farms for the day “and for­get about all the is­sues re­lat­ing to farm­ing at the mo­ment”.

She said in­creas­ing wa­ter and elec­tric­ity prices were tak­ing their toll.

“They’re two ma­jor is­sues faced by farm­ers at the mo­ment,” Mrs Webb said.

“It’s putting fairly sig­nif­i­cant fi­nan­cial pres­sure on farm­ers.”
