Campaspe News - - FRONT PAGE -

Nan­neella's Brett Gled­hill has or­gan­ised a night of mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment on Satur­day, Au­gust 20, to help lo­cal fam­i­lies get their minds off the cur­rent dairy cri­sis.

A NIGHT of fam­ily fun is on in Nan­neella next week to help dis­trict farm­ers and res­i­dents for­get about their stresses for a few hours.

Band The Mud­slingers will be at Nan­neella Me­mo­rial Hall on Satur­day next week to pro­vide mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment, with event-go­ers also be­ing treated to a sup­per.

Or­gan­iser Brett Gled­hill, pic­tured, said the ra­tio­nale be­hind the oc­ca­sion was sim­ple.

‘‘We wanted to or­gan­ise this as a com­mu­nity night for ev­ery­one and to give peo­ple a chance to break away from the stresses of life for one night,’’ he said.

‘‘It’s no se­cret there has been a down­turn in the dairy in­dus­try and a lot of lo­cal busi­nesses are strug­gling.

‘‘We used to run these sort of events years ago and thought it was time to do it again.’’

Mr Gled­hill said it was shap­ing up to be a lot of fun, par­tic­u­larly be­cause The Mud­slingers played a lot of 1980s and 1990s mu­sic and en­joyed a strong fol­low­ing in the area.

‘‘It’s a good op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to come along and en­joy some good mu­sic,’’ he said.

The event kicks off at 7.30pm, with tick­ets priced at $15 for adults, $10 for high school stu­dents and $2 for pri­mary school stu­dents and un­der.

Peo­ple are wel­come to bring their own drinks.

Nan­neella Hall Com­mit­tee has or­gan­ised the event.
