Sweet re­sult

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

THERE was the usual hic­cup with dru­gre­lated of­fences but the re­cent 10th an­nual Straw­berry Fields and Mu­sic Fes­ti­val at Tocumwal was still a huge win­ner.

A ca­pac­ity crowd of 8000 at­tended the four-day fes­ti­val and a com­mu­nity bar­be­cue to feed the pa­trons raised $35,000, which will go to sup­port projects in the town.

The fes­ti­val was held on a new site with river frontage and beach swim­ming ac­cess, which was utilised by a lot of the fes­ti­val go­ers.

Some 45 driv­ers at­tend­ing the fes­ti­val were de­tected with drugs, which was 25 lower than the pre­vi­ous year, but only two were charged with drink driv­ing of­fences.
