MAYNE Street cafe offers school holiday cooking classes

Stephanie Limn owner of the Mayne Street Café is offering cooking classes for children during the school holidays.

The classes run for two hours at a cost of $25 per child.

I called into the class on Wednesday and there were 15 children sitting around a table rolling out the dough to make their own shaped cookies.

Others were making pancakes. If your children are interested in cooking this is a great way to get them started.

The next class is Wednesday, July 19 and the children will be baking. For information on the classes and bookings call Stephanie 6374 1738.

Gulgong gold experience offers gold panning

If you like to be hands-on gold panning will be available every day from 1pm to 3pm during the school holidays. Gravel from local gold bearing creeks is brought in regularly.

The cost is $5 for adults $3 for children $15 for families Activity bags including pan hire $5 each.

Bags contain genuine gems or gold covered stones with plastic vial and a gold souvenir poppet head coin.
