Town to be dressed in woolly best for winter dinner

A WINTER wonderland is being created on the main street of Maryvale just in time for the town's annual Frostbite dinner next Saturday.

Maryvale Craft Group has been furiously knitting, sewing and creating to line Taylor St with hand-crafted treasures that will also remain on the street for Jumpers and Jazz.

Maryvale Progress Association president Joan Bean said community groups and businesses were working together to create an enjoyable atmosphere for the Frostbite dinner.

"Maryvale has the sense that we're a town on the move and people are wanting to contribute,” she said.

A cosy atmosphere will be created with an indoor log fire and outdoor fire pit.

Mrs Bean said last year the event was so popular people had to be turned away at the door.

With only 30 tickets left for the event, eager diners are urged to book their tickets soon.

Mrs Bean said funds raised at the dinner will be reinvested in the Maryvale community.

Funds previously raised have been used to create a memorial garden, she said.

"We turned an overgrown paddock into a beautiful place,” she said.

"It's a place of reflection with a glorious outlook.”

The dinner will run from 5.30-11pm with a two-course meal and music from the Blue Violets.

A raffle and auction will also be held.

Tickets cost $27.50 for adults, $15 for teenagers, $10 for children three years and above and free for children under three.

Bookings are essential, phone 0418160341.
