Head to woodcraft expo at Montville

WHAT could be a more wonderful way to spend a winter's day then to go to an exhibition of locally produced woodcrafts?

That opportunity will be available to the public through the efforts of the members of the Blackall Range Woodcrafters' Guild, which will present a broad range of items, some for sale, at the Woodcraft Expo on the weekend of July 4 and 5 between 9am and 4pm daily.

The group has 175 enthusiastic members who enjoy creating many different items, from pull-along toys (by the toy boys) to beautifully crafted tables, pens, bowls and squatters' chairs.

The revamped Montville Community Hall will be filled with beautiful and useful items, many of which will be included in the displays ready for the independent judges to decide the winners.

Winners will be announced and certificates presented at 10.30am on Saturday.

There will be some demonstrations, a great raffle with handcrafted wood prizes, a delicious sausage sizzle and refreshments available throughout the day.

The items for sale cater to every taste, are reasonably priced and nothing is imported.

The public is invited and entry is free.
