A PART­NER­SHIP be­tween Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil Events team and the Childers based Friends of the Fes­ti­val has re­sulted in a surge of new ini­tia­tives for the an­nual Childers Fes­ti­val.

Cr Judy Peters said that hav­ing a group of peo­ple fa­mil­iar with the Childers area will­ing to help the coun­cil in grow­ing the fes­ti­val had re­sulted in sev­eral pop­u­lar events be­ing pro­posed and de­liv­ered as part of lead up to the fes­ti­val cel­e­bra­tions.

“This year the Friends of the Fes­ti­val came up with the idea to pro­mote a hugely suc­cess­ful lo­cal sugar in­dus­try and cane fire tour with the gen­er­ous co-op­er­a­tion of Isis Cen­tral Sugar Mill.

“Opera by the Lake, his­tor­i­cal coach tour and Art in the Park were other ini­tia­tives that en­sured this year’s 20 year an­niver­sary of the Childers Fes­ti­val was mem­o­rable.”

“Friends of the Fes­ti­val con­tinue to play an in­te­gral role in keep­ing the fes­ti­val fresh and very rel­a­tive to the Childers com­mu­nity and to those at­tend­ing the event,” said Cr Peters.

Friends of the Fes­ti­val mem­ber Mary Byrne said it was pleas­ing that the coun­cil and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the com­mu­nity had a plat­form where ideas to im­prove the Childers Fes­ti­val could be ex­changed and dis­cussed.

“It’s im­por­tant that we keep the fes­ti­val fresh and in­vig­o­rated.”

The next meet­ing of the Childers Friends is on Thurs­day, Jan­uary 28 at 4.30pm at the Isis Cul­tural Cen­tre.
