Colourful display of flowers and art at Spring flower show

November 16, 2018

How fantastic it was to see the Wiseman Crowley Hall full of wonderful colour. Organisers were a little worried leading up to the Flower Show that the flowers would not cope in such hot dry and windy conditions, but the hall was a picture of blooms, surrounded by Bingara school children’s and pre-school children’s art work and handicraft.

Thank you to all who entered flowers, so much care and hard work was required to keep the exhibits at such a high standard.

2018 Bingara Spring Flower ShowThe judge of the student art and handicraft sections remarked that it was very heartening to see such a good number and variety of contributions from all sections of Bingara Central School and Bingara Pre-school, especially secondary years 7-10 handicraft. It’s always wonderful to see emerging creativity of the preschoolers and younger children. The effort they put into their entries is greatly appreciated, by the Spring Flower Show committee at large.

Once again the ladies from Rocky Creek organized our street stall, in Maitland Street. Thank you for your time and effort.

The day was so very hot, but Lenore and her team from Dewberry Lane, were calm cool and collected, when showing their great colourful outfits in the Fashion Parade complete with Melbourne Cup attire.

Thank you to local artist Tash Cooper and the Heaton Family for their great entertainment.

The last item for the day was the presentation of prize winners and champions. Thank you to our judges Jan Haley (flowers) Robbie Swatman (Art and handicraft) Tony Gomez (photography).

Flowers and posies were presented to our special helpers, Lenore and her wonderful models, flower judge Jan and entertainers Tash, Tanya, Rachael and Sarah.

As always our wonderful people at St Johns and Bingara community at large have worked tirelessly to pull this amazing show together under very difficult climatic conditions. So an extra huge thank you and round of applause to them all. Many local businesses contributed to making this day successful. Our thanks go to Gwydir News, McGregor Gourlay, Bingara I.G.A.
