Journey back in time at annual Laidley Heritage Weekend

Take a journey back in time next month at the annual Laidley Heritage Weekend.

Acting Mayor Tanya Milligan said the festival was an opportunity to revel in the old-fashioned fun of years gone by.

"Taking a break from the business of everyday life and re-connecting with what matters is important, and this is the perfect chance to do just that.
