Local craft & cooking a hit with visitors

18th Jan 2023

A wonderful display of local crafts by talented local ladies was one of the highlights of the Lamb & Potato Festival. The display, showcasing needlework, knitting, crochet, sewing, hand crafted cards, hand turned pens and cooking, was held in the Anglican Church Hall.
Robin Godlonton said it was a pleasure to share their work with so many travellers over the 12 days of the festival.
“It was fantastic especially the weekends, lots of friendly people all very positive about the festival and how delicious the lamb was,” Robin said. “We all had a good time and having the new Guyra information booklet out was great as we became the information centre encouraging all visitors to explore the local treasures as well as the Lamb and Potato festival program.
“The only thing missing was the big “I” (information) sign outside!!!!! We encouraged many visitors to see our lovely artwork on the toilet block next to the Post Office.
“As a group we enjoyed being together, a big thank you to our group for setting up signs on the highway and Ollera street every morning and bringing them down each afternoon , taking it in turn to bring morning tea, which was yummy too.
“Thank you to everyone that helped with the pack up and cleaning the hall on Sunday afternoon, many hands makes light work. The Local Craft Group would like to thank the Anglican Church for letting us hire the Hall for the 12 days, much appreciated.”
