Kandos and Rylstone news

Rylstone Family Fun Day

Last Wednesday the annual Family Fun Day was very well attended. Family groups were scattered all over the Rylstone Showground. There were many activities for the children to enjoy.

The jumping castle, bungee run, face painting, sensory activities, playdough, building blocks, crafts, Kandos Fire and Rescue Brigade, trike rides, with catering by the busy Rylstone Rotary. Organiser, Marisa Quintana, said the numbers of children were very good but she will know when she counts the children’s passports.

Each child had their passport stamped as they visited the sixteen different activities. The Kandos Firemen had given away most of the two hundred and fifty helmets, half way through the day.

Big Slab Poured

The Rylstone Hospital work continued with a seventeen cubic metres slab of cement poured last week. Seven builders under Dimmer Bucan finished the base for accommodation two flats for nursing staff.

Central Concrete Pumping Services from Bathurst moved the cement supplied by Kuchta from Kandos.

SsshOUT !

The SsshOUT! community exhibition discussing domestic and family violence opening night was very well attended, last Saturday. Exhibits are part of a silent auction, similar to tendering, raising money in support of the white ribbon. Catering was delicious, complimented by wines from Naked Lady vineyard.

The exhibition and silent auction is at Gallery No. 47 Rylstone until October 30.

The Big Pink.

The business houses in Kandos Rylstone are to be commended for their support of ‘Pink Up’. Supporting the McGrath Foundation, raising funds for research into breast cancer, the district has sold out of pink ribbons and balloons.

Activities will be happening later this month.

New Fireries

Six members of the Rural Fire Service received training in fire and bush fire fighting skills last weekend. The volunteers will be completely competent to handle the fires in the future. Many members from the Cudgegong District helped with the comprehensive training.
