Sun shines on show day
NUMURKAH show day success exceeded organisers' expectations, with good crowds and large exhibit entries, despite the cancellation of the horse events.
Brilliant weather greeted attendees, who turned out to see sideshows, dogs, cattle and pavilion exhibits.
Numurkah show secretary Sue Aldridge said crowd numbers were similar to last year, even though the horse events were cancelled due to boggy ground conditions.
Kids matter to Sue
A NUMURKAH child care worker has been recognised for her love of children and dedication to detail, by taking out an award for being the best child carer.
Sue McKellar was named Family Day Carer of the Year, from 120 other educators who work for the Goulburn Valley-based company Kids Matter.
Delays cost Waaia a win
RAIN delays prevented Waaia from riding an outstanding century by its English import, Michael Mitchell, to victory against the Deniliquin Rhinos at Waaia on Saturday.
Mitchell posted 121 not out and carried his bat when Waaia batted first and posted 4/248, but the match finished in a draw, thanks largely to the weather.
