Rose City residents ready for show

WARWICK has many talented citizens, evidenced by Warwick Showgrounds pavilion filling up quickly with paintings to polished stones, the hard work of Rose City residents.

Scrapbooking chief steward and sponsor Dawn Jordan said the 185 scrapbooking entries this year were great, with a lot of new faces trying their hand at the artistic pages.

“The standards have really been raised, with lots more people being adventurous with their techniques,” Ms Jordan said.

Pavilion chief steward Lyn Brown said the pavilion was coming together nicely, with a lot of hard work by volunteers.

There is plenty to see, giving Rose City’s local talents an opportunity to shine in their chosen hobbies and share it with the whole community.

“Quite high-quality paintings entered here this year, a lot of beautiful items. The photography is beautiful,” Mrs Brown said.

The grounds are in peak condition with groundsman Ross Mickan and the Warwick work camp women getting the area into peak condition for tomorrow’s opening day.

Wool section chief steward Michael Welsh and volunteers were working hard weighing the wool, with entry numbers similar to last year.

“Good-quality fleece weights are reasonable. The talk of the area is the weights are down because of the previous seasons,” Mr Welsh said.
