WILLAURA - Warm weather helped ensure a good turnout at the Willaura Harvest Cutout and the crowd was able to make the most of the various outdoor activities on offer.
Members of the Willaura community and beyond did their bit in order to ensure the Cutout continues to provide an enjoyable evening for all.
The Willaura Kindergarten parents did an impressive job with the catering and the Willaura Tennis Club organised the bar and ensured that all went smoothly.
New this year was the band The Shed Dwellers, and their music was appreciated by a crowd who rarely has the privilege of hearing live music in their town.
The Greater Hamilton Archery Club returned to the Cutout this year, and proved a hit with attendees. Teenagers in particular were keen to learn about the sport and see if they could hit the mark. The club members were patient and helpful with the crowd, and their efforts proved successful, with a lot of arrows landing on target. The Willaura community is grateful that the club members were willing to come along and so generously provide their equipment and tuition.
The Jumping Castle always keeps the young ones busy and lots of children went home very tired after all their bouncing and laughing, while the Belly Bumpers also created a lot of fun and created lots of tumbles.
Face painting is always popular and children enjoyed having Annabelle Millear and Angela Brain transform them.
The crowd also appreciated the information provided by East Grampians Health Service, and the opportunity to meet with the speech pathologist.
This was the 10th Harvest Cutout and it continued to provide pleasure to a wide range of community members.
