Wilby drought relief night
A free twilight barbecue was held at Wilby Hall on Friday, November 23.
The Wilby Hall Committee instigated the event so that all the community could come together to join neighbours and friends and take time out to forget about the drought and the poor season which has affected all the community.
It was a great social occasion with a substantial number in attendance to enjoy good food and a relaxing evening. President of the committee, Robert Glover commented that it was pleasing to see the hall being well used as recently the committee was successful in obtaining funding through Moira Shire Council budget to refurbish the building. It is expected that works will commence early in 2019.
As an added bonus on the evening was, Tungamah Lions Club representatives attending to demonstrate some simple to make fruit fly traps and distribute information kits to each household. It was agreed that if most people in Wilby constructed a trap we would have an idea of the numbers and can better deal with any infestations.
