Wallabadah party for farmers

The Wallabadah Farmers Support Group did its bit to support local farmers during the worst drought in living memory by organising a Christmas celebratory party on December 20 at the local racetrack. The venue was particularly relevant because the 2019 New Year's Eve Race Day had been cancelled due to the condition of the track, because of the on-going dry season, so it was an opportunity to put it to use. Organiser Martin Gostelow invited Sam and Jenny Bailey to speak and a fantastic local band to play on the night. "It was a cracker night," said Sam. "Just what you would expect from a small rural community like that. They know how to put on a great event."
