The frosts have started in Barraba. Locals say they always start around Anzac Day.
Preparation for this year's Arts Festival continue apace. This week, volunteers are busy organising tickets for Preview Night, working on the design for the hanging partitions, getting out media releases and getting final details from all the guest artists and judges. Entries are slowly begining to trickle in. Experienced campaigner Margaret Harris assures us that this is quite normal, entries will flood in at the last minute, as always.
Preview Night is all organised, with Kevin Anderson coming to open the Festival, and the announcement of the major aquisitive prize of $2000, generously donated by New England Mutual.
The Frost committee is a passionate group of Barraba locals, who are working hard to pull off a fabulous event.
