SON OF A NUTCRACKER! IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME!
Time to celebrate with friends and family, indulge in a few treats, delight each other with some thoughtful gift-giving and prepare to bid farewell to what has been an EPIC year.
I must admit, I feel like I could do with a week of holidays before Christmas Day (in addition to the week after, thanks) just to unwind from the long year and perhaps get some washing done? Usually we can see signs of the community slowing down by this time, but no dice this year! The very recent opening of the brand spanking new Quairading Pool has held us all captive and capped off the year beautifully. I had the pleasure of popping down on Wednesday to have a chin wag on the radio during the Triple M (fka Radio West) poolside broadcast, organised by the Shire of Quairading. Once all the grass has been rolled out it’s going to be a wonderful spot to spend some time over the next few months!
In other local news, we hosted a successful Business After Hours event with WBN and Roger Gough from GWN7 on Wednesday 14th December. Roger had a few examples of TV ad campaigns from different towns and businesses around the state. Keep your eyes on gee dub, Quairading’s next 15 minutes might be just around the corner!
You may have seen a Public Art Survey around the traps. Thank you so much to everyone who has shared their many and varied ideas so far, and I encourage the rest of you to throw us your thoughts! We think the already beautiful townscape could do with a touch more local character, but we need y’all to tell us so (or not so) too! A copy of the survey is on Page 10, or you can find the online link on our Facebook page.
We will be closing at 12pm on Friday 23rd December and reopening at 10am on Tuesday 3rd January 2017, throughout January we’ll be open from 10am to 3pm, or other times by prior arrangement.
On behalf on all CRC staff and Management Committee, I wish a very Merry Christmas and a gleeful New Year to every single one of you. Thank you for your endless support and lovely, encouraging comments. It overwhelms me every month that there are people enjoying reading my ramblings as much as I enjoy rambling them.
Bartender, another one!
