New site, same family fun

THE location may have changed, but locals will still find the same good old-fashioned family fun they have come to expect at the Sacred Heart Church Fete this weekend.

The popular event will be held this Sunday from 11.30am, but instead of being held at the church, for the first time, it will take place on the grounds of St Patrick's Primary School.

Sacred Heart parish priest Father Andrew Grace said everything was set for another great fundraiser.

"We decided on a change of venue because there is more shade and space to move at the school," Father Grace said.

"It is our major fundraiser for the year. We have also had a big raffle on sale leading up to it. That will be drawn on the day. The funds we raise will go towards school buildings and to help the parish."

Small children can enjoy a lucky dip, mystery containers, merry-go-round, two jumping castles and train and pony rides, while big kids will get the chance to dunk Father Grace and St Pat's principal David Adams-Jones. They can also take part in a range of games such as egg and spoon and sack races.

Father Grace said the fete offered something for everyone.

"We have covered just about everything. The kids will have lots of fun while mum and dad haven't been forgotten either," he said.

"We are blessed this year to have some beautiful cuisine on offer. There will be Italian, Indian, Filipino and an Aussie barbecue.

"You can win plenty of hams on the chocolate wheel just in time for Christmas."

Enjoy a great day out in support of the school and church this Sunday.
