Made on the Hill

The Melbourne Royal Show is coming. Remember the CWA pavilion where you saw all those special cakes and other goodies along with crafts including knitted jumpers, baby smocks and wooden toys.

Back to the days when we all knew how to make a cake, knit a sock or produce that perfect pumpkin. That tradition is now at the ‘On the Hill Festival’ in Panton Hill on Sunday Oct 11th.

Note on paintings

We have decided not to include paintings this year as we were over supplied last year and did not have the proper facilities for a good display. We wish to encourage country style activities but we are always open to suggestions.
