Farmer couples enjoy day off
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.”
