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.

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.
