One of the great community-minded members of the Roelands/Olive Hills Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade (VBFB) sent us some great photos from the LiveLighter Harvey Harvest Festival on Sunday where everyone including Bushy Bear, some awesome kids and members of the UDUC Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade (VBFB) looked like they were having a great time.
As always, we thank our members for sending information and photos like these to us and we are very happy to share them with the thousands of other volunteers, members of parliament and other stakeholders who look forward to our weekly newsletter for information and insight into the amazing community work being done by our members everyday of every week.
Three photos submitted by Jeremy at the Roelands/Olive Hills VBFB are immediately below and we’ve included another from our friends at the Harvey-Waroona Reporter with the words they used to describe the day directly after that.
Perfect weather enticed a record crowd to the LiveLighter Harvey Harvest Festival on Sunday, when the event marked its 20th year.
Freeman of Shire John Sabourne opened the festival for a day of rides, games, food, live music and market stalls.
The event culminated in the WA Grape Stomping Championships grand finals.
In the primary school section Bridget Sawyer and Olivia Corso took out the top prize while Sarah Oberthur and Jessica Gerbasi won the high school event.
In the open final, siblings Regan and Yana Guretti took the crown making 5.62kg of grape juice followed by brothers Sebastien and Zachary Mosca with 5.09kg in second and Rachel Andrijasevich and Nik Foster with 3.52kg in third.
