The Goorambat community held a successful Art and Craft display on the Saturday and Sunday of the recent Wall to Wall street art festival.

Local ladies put on Devonshire Teas throughout the weekend. Beautiful scones, jam and cream and a cuppa was most welcome for the many visitors to the town.

There was two static displays outside.

Gall Farming supplied some modern farm equipment; an air seeder, harvester, spray unit and a quadtrac.

Murray Stokes has been restoring historic baling equipment since 2002. He was able to show us 11 fully restored balers with an information sign included.

We had many stalls in the hall, which looked terrific when you stepped through the doors.

Tracey Moss and Jenny Reaburn raised funds for Peter Mac’s A Day to Conquer Cancer, the walk they and others participate in each year.

The ladies and their family baked for the stall and along with knitted goods and other donations of jams and quince pastes raised more than $950 for this worthy cause. Anna Elliott a keen knitter, was also raising funds for Cancer Research and her sales were donated to the ladies’ tally.

We had talented local artists presenting their work for display and sales — Julie Stephens with her beautiful bird life paintings, Margie Young with her leadlighting and mosaic work, Tash Young with her glass-inspired colourful jewellery and Steve and Nell from Rustic Twig Wood, Cathy Pianta with her Nooramunga Workmate and Nooramunga Naturals, a variety of health and beauty products along with her paintings on cattle skulls and hand-crafted items.

Artist Matthew Adnate was available in the morning on both days and gave a talk about his work.
