After a challenging year for community events and gatherings, the Lisarow community will at last hold its biennial Country Fair at Lisarow Public School on Saturday, May 15.
The day will feature rides, local food and produce, quality second-hand goods, plants, books, a barbecue, cakes, show bags, a chocolate wheel and Side Show Alley, face-painting, local music and entertainment, a visit from the local fire service, and an auction with prizes.
The event has been organised by volunteers from the community and is sponsored by a number of local businesses, including Lisarow Self Storage and Cake and Plate.
All profits made from the day will be used to purchase learning resources for the students of Lisarow Public School, including laptops and charging trolleys for integrated Information and Communication Technology (ICT) development.
President of the Lisarow Primary School P&C, Scott Tilden, said he is both relieved and happy that current COVID-19 management strategies will enable the event to go ahead as planned.
“This event bears great significance for our area,” Tilden said.
“We only hold it once every two years so there is a lot of anticipation for Country Fair Year.
“We love the event for the way it recycles goods, supports the learning opportunities of our kids, but most of all, for the way it brings us all together for a good fun time.
“This is something we need to encourage and preserve in our communities.
“We have a thorough COVID-safe plan for the day.”
