Keep Our Country Show Alive

Now in it’s 67th year, the future of our favourite family show is hanging on by a thread.

The Show’s success and longevity so far, can only be attributed to it’s team of volunteers, sponsors, supporters and our local council, without whom the Show would not go on.

In recent years it’s been a challenge to replace exiting committee members, and to fill official committee positions, leaving us with no scope for succession planning.

We’re urgently looking for members of the community who are interested in joining the committee, and volunteering to help run the Show for 2020 and beyond. If this is you, please get in contact with us.

This can be done via our website

Or by calling: 0414 071 565

Please spread the word and we hope to see you all for the 2020 Show.
