Grafton Show Pavilion success


As Chief Steward of the Pavilion for the 2021 Grafton Show, I would like to thank my loyal band of volunteers and stewards for giving up two weeks of their time, family and lives to turn the pavilion into the success it was.

A big thank you is in order also to the many exhibitors that showed their “hobbies” for the general public to look at and at times wonder how a particular item was created or made, ranging from art work, crafts, cooking, cake decorating, preserves, photography, fine arts, and school work.

Initiated for the first time this year were three new competitions;

* Open Pavilion overall point score – won by Jennifer McGaw. 

* Junior Pavilion overall point score – won by Emily Hyde.

* Overall point score for Aged Care and Disability – won by Whiddon Grafton Aged  Care

The schools competition was down in numbers this year, but those that entered displayed the pupils work dipicting Anzac Day was of good quality, with Westlawn PS winning the Perpetual Trophy for 2021, congratulations Westlawn.

Yamba Early Learning Centre won first prize for the Pre School Section.

Last but not least, a big thank you to our valuable judges who gave us their time and useful comments on various aspects of their respective crafts.

Thank you one and all.
