Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

EN­TER­ING home cooked and hand­made cre­ations into her lo­cal show is sec­ond na­ture for Tar­rawingee res­i­dent Anne Rid­dell (pic­tured).

Even from her early child­hood liv­ing north of Wagga Wagga in coun­try New South Wales, ev­ery mem­ber of her fam­ily would en­ter some­thing in the lo­cal show ev­ery year.

“It was our fam­ily cul­ture as a child,” she said.

When she moved to Wan­garatta years later, she vowed to con­tinue that tra­di­tion, and has been en­ter­ing items in the Wan­garatta Show for around 25 years.

“I won a few prizes and I was hooked after that,” she said.

Anne reg­u­larly en­ters jams and pre­serves, and is also known to bake the odd cake as a show en­try.

She also some­times puts in en­tries of hand­crafted items (pre­vi­ously, a hand­made doll and bear and this year, patch­work cre­ations) and has also en­tered veg­eta­bles and herbs.

THE Friends of the Hos­pi­tal will be hold­ing their monthly cake stall fundraiser in North­east Health Wan­garatta’s (NHW) café on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 17 from 8.30am un­til sold out.

All your favourite tra­di­tional home-made treats will be avail­able in­clud­ing fruit cakes, slices, sponges, bis­cuits, sausage rolls, jams, sauces and much more.

All prof­its raised are do­nated to NHW to buy much needed med­i­cal equip­ment that will help ben­e­fit our lo­cal com­mu­nity.

One of her proud­est show mo­ments was the year she won first prize for a zuc­chini slice she put to­gether at the last minute, but Anne said she mainly en­ters items just to have some­thing in the show.She also en­ters items in the show as her con­tri­bu­tion to help keep com­pe­ti­tion in the pavil­ions lively and thriv­ing.“If peo­ple don’t put things in the show, there is no show,” Anne said.“It’s good to en­cour­age oth­ers,” she said.The Wan­garatta Show will be held this Fri­day and Satur­day at the Wan­garatta Show­grounds.For more in­for­ma­tion see wan­garat­tashow.org.au.WAN­GARATTA po­lice have a range of jew­ellery in their lost prop­erty depart­ment and are try­ing to lo­cate the right­ful own­ers.The jew­ellery in­cludes two men’s wed­ding bands, one ladies en­gage­ment and wed­ding ring set, one Pan­dora bracelet with a num­ber of charms and one gold chain.If you be­lieve the jew­ellery may be yours con­tact the prop­erty of­fi­cer at Wan­garatta Po­lice Sta­tion on 5723 0888.LEARN how to make ar­ti­san cheese from home dur­ing a se­ries of Spring Cheese­mak­ing Ses­sions be­ing held at the Wan­garatta Li­brary, with the first ses­sion be­ing held at 6.30pm to­day.The ses­sions are be­ing hosted by cheese­maker Anna-Kate Pizzini as a fundraiser for the Edi Up­per Pri­mary School and will in­clude demon­stra­tions of camem­bert, blue vein and haloumi.The ses­sions will be held on Oc­to­ber 10, 24 and Novem­ber 14 and the cost is $30 each (or $70 for all three) and they’ll run from 6.30pm un­til 8pm, with cheese tast­ing and a light sup­per pro­vided by stu­dents as part of the Stephanie Alexan­der Kitchen Gar­den Pro­gram.Book­ings can be made by call­ing the school on 5729 3560.IN­DIGO Shire mayor Jenny O’Con­nor will pub­licly launch her cam­paign for the seat of Be­nam­bra as an in­de­pen­dent in Novem­ber’s state elec­tion.Ms O’Con­nor has been the mayor of In­digo Shire Coun­cil for the past two years and also con­tested three fed­eral elec­tions in the Indi elec­torate for the Greens.She has been a nurse, a com­mu­nity health worker and a small busi­ness owner.Ms O’Con­nor will launch her cam­paign to­mor­row in Wodonga.
