On Sunday I had the pleasure of attending the 2012 Bellarine Agricultural Show. Unlike the past few years, the rain held off and a good time was had by all. Livestock and horse competitions were fiercely fought, only to be matched by the high quality of horticultural and cooking exhibits. Traditional handicrafts were displayed and demonstrated in an effort to keep the skills of knitting, crochet and embroidery alive. One can only hope it inspired the youngsters in attendance to learn more about how to make beautiful pieces in a variety of ways.
I take this opportunity to congratulate the Bellarine Agricultural Society on a well-planned and interesting 2012 show that really catered for all age groups. I wish to particularly thank the president, Graeme Brown, for taking time out to show us the many highlights.
I also thank all the stewards who provided us with so much information and many important tips at each activity point. Well done to them!
