Henry Lawson Festival 2018

Our wonderful Henry Lawson Festival is over for another 12 months and all will agree that despite the conditions everything went off very well with a large crowd attending.

Congratulations to our Festival President,  Allan Griffiths and his hard working committee- a job well done.

The Festival's main fundraiser, the monster raffle of 18 fabulous prizes was another huge success and the Raffle Coordinator, Bill Rudd wish to thank the many wonderful people who manned the stalls selling tickets leading up to the Festival Weekend.

Also many thanks to those who assisted at the three street stalls and to those great cooks who provided cooking and other saleable goods. Many thanks also to those people who continually supported the raffle by purchasing tickets.

Last but not least a big thank you once again to the businesses that donated the fabulous prizes for the monster raffle.
