AgLife: Annual Wonwondah fleece and flower showcase

Wonwondah Hall Fleece and Flower Show will bring the community together on Sunday for another historic event.

The show has been running at Wonwondah Hall since the 1940s and is a staple in the community’s yearly calendar.

There are crossbred and merino wool, cut flowers, fruits and vegetables, cooking and children’s art and craft sections at the show.

Hall committee president Andrew Bell said he was looking forward to seeing as many entries as possible.

“The event and the entries pack out the hall,” he said.

“It’s our largest fundraiser for the hall for the year and allows us to do upkeep and maintenance. Our next big project will be to paint the hall.”

Mr Bell said the Fleece and Flower Show was important to the Wonwondah community.

“It brings the locals together and shows off what we can produce in the area,” he said.

“The hall is still used for auctions and other events we run throughout the year.

“It’s one of the only small halls left in the district that is used often.”

Mr Bell said Member for Lowan Emma Kealy was this year’s guest speaker.

He said entries would be accepted at the hall from 10.30am to noon.

“All the entries will then be judged and then from 2pm, with an afternoon tea, people can come through and see who won prizes and who won the aggregate in each class,” he said.
