Night out for dairy farm­ers

Shepparton News - Country News - - DAIRY -

More than 100 peo­ple flocked to Gir­garre for the Kyabram Dis­cus­sion Group’s Christ­mas gath­er­ing.

Opened to the pub­lic for the first time, the night aimed to give dairy farm­ers and farm em­ploy­ees a free night out to re­lax.

Held at the Gir­garre Foot­ball Club, guests en­joyed a bar­be­cue cooked by the Gir­garre Fire Brigade as well as en­ter­tain­ment by the True Coun­try band.

Dis­cus­sion group pres­i­dent John McCready said with all the bad news around at the mo­ment, peo­ple needed a chance to es­cape and re­lax.

‘‘We were pleased to have 130 peo­ple at­tend. It was great to see ev­ery­one re­lax­ing and en­joy­ing them­selves on a free so­cial evening,’’ he said.

‘‘The group nor­mally has a Christ­mas gath­er­ing but we wanted to open it up to more peo­ple this year as it has been a bit tougher.’’
