Fish and chips at Wil­laura

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Vol­un­teers in­volved in tra­di­tional Royal Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Good Friday Ap­peal event at Wil­laura are hoping for yet an­other suc­cess­ful fam­ily fun day.

The ap­peal’s Wil­laura branch has sup­ported the money-rais­ing pro­gram for more than 30 years and its ‘Fish ‘n’ Chip Lunch’ has be­come the back­bone of a time-hon­oured re­gional com­mu­nity gath­er­ing.

Morn­ing ac­tiv­i­ties at Wil­laura Re­cre­ation Re­serve will start early for the vol­un­teers who will set up equip­ment and pre­pare for a busy few hours. The lunch of freshly cooked fish and chips is al­ways a ma­jor high­light and or­gan­is­ers ex­pect to serve hun­dreds of meals.

The event fea­tures a va­ri­ety of chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing a jump­ing cas­tle and the ar­rival of Easter bunny.

This year’s gath­er­ing will in­clude Ash­lee and Dan Blight’s clydes­dales from Arm­strong. The horses won prizes at Royal Mel­bourne Show.

A spin­ning wheel, with goods up for grabs do­nated by busi­nesses, will again be op­er­at­ing and or­gan­is­ers have thanked all in­volved. A fire­wood auc­tion is also likely to at­tract keen bid­ding. The event com­mit­tee is al­ways look­ing for com­mu­nity help and en­cour­ages any­one ‘with an hour or so spare on the day’ to of­fer their ser­vices. Roles in­clude sit­ting at the door col­lect­ing do­na­tions, serv­ing meals, tidy­ing up and gen­er­ally help­ing.

Fish ‘n’ chip lunches will cost $20 for adults, se­condary stu­dents $15, pri­mary stu­dents $5 and chil­dren four and un­der are free of charge.

Peo­ple seek­ing more de­tails or keen to help can call Heather Flem­ing on 0428 541 328.
