Sey­mour Mar­ket no longer

The Sey­mour Mar­ket will no longer be a monthly event in the town.

‘‘Af­ter seven won­der­ful and successful mar­kets and many vis­i­tors both lo­cally and from out of town, I thank you all for supporting this event,’’ mar­ket man­ager Carly El­dredge said.

‘‘The costs of run­ning such an event are high and even with 60-plus stall hold­ers each month I’m strug­gling to cover the ba­sics such as venue hire, rub­bish re­moval and per­mits.

‘‘There are many other mar­kets within 30 min­utes of Sey­mour to ex­plore.’’

Learner band wants you

An in­for­ma­tion ses­sion for any­one in­ter­ested in join­ing Mitchell Shire Con­cert Band’s learner pro­gram will be held to­mor­row at 6 pm in the band hall in Pol­lard St, Sey­mour, just at the turnoff to Sey­mour Sports and Aquatic Cen­tre.

Through its learner group pro­gram, Mitchell Shire Con­cert Band is of­fer­ing lo­cals the op­por­tu­nity to learn an in­stru­ment, and no prior mu­si­cal knowl­edge or own­er­ship of an in­stru­ment is nec­es­sary.

Art4CFA ex­hi­bi­tion

A to­tal of $4225 has been raised for White­heads Creek Fire Brigade, thanks to the generous ef­forts of Sey­mour and District Arts So­ci­ety’s Art4 CFA ex­hi­bi­tion, held dur­ing the Easter long week­end.

Com­mis­sion on the sale of art­works by so­ci­ety mem­bers was do­nated to the CFA, while a raf­fle and silent auc­tion also added to the fi­nal fig­ure.

The an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion is in its fifth year, with next year’s event pen­cilled in for Tra­wool CFA.

Mi­nor de­lays on high­way

Any­one trav­el­ling to Shep­par­ton in the next three weeks should be mind­ful of up­grade works on the Seven Creeks Bridge, on Goul­burn Val­ley Hwy just south of Shep­par­ton, which will cause some de­lays.

This work is es­sen­tial to re­in­force the bridge to en­able con­tin­ued use by heavy ve­hi­cles. Traf­fic lights will be op­er­at­ing with one lane of the bridge closed to ve­hi­cles.

Works are expected to take three weeks to com­plete, start­ing with works sched­uled from 7 am to 5.30 pm on week­days and 7 am to 3.30 pm on Satur­days.
