“We haven’t locked in the Buck­land Val­ley Au­tumn Har­vest yet but that’s one we are keen to have fol­low the Wandi Nut Fes­ti­val again.

“The bush dance, In­stameet, steel and wood­work work­shops were all new the year be­fore.

“Num­bers were up at this year’s bush dance which was an­other great night and re­ally well run and our In­stameet has been in­cred­i­bly suc­cess­ful with peo­ple get­ting to share their pas­sion for pho­tog­ra­phy.”

The Au­tumn Fes­ti­val com­mit­tee is how­ever look­ing for a new pro­grams co­or­di­na­tor af­ter long-time vol­un­teer Bev Sch­warz re­tired from the role.

“What we’d like to do and have the pro­gram co­or­di­na­tor look at is new ways to get the pro­gram out to peo­ple at a lesser cost,” Mr Hol­land said.

“What we’ve been do­ing is spend­ing a sig­nif­i­cant chuck of our bud­get on print­ing hun­dreds of pro­grams each year but if we could cut those costs we might have more money to ad­ver­tise the fes­ti­val or to spend on en­ter­tain­ment and ac­tiv­i­ties.” FES­TI­VAL FEA­TURE: The Bright Au­tumn Fes­ti­val com­mit­tee is tak­ing sug­ges­tions for next year’s Gala Day pa­rade.
