NABIAC Hay and Rural celebrated its move to Dyers Crossing with an auction on Easter Saturday, April 15 which raised $1553 for Manning Hospital’s children’s ward. 

Wendy Murray, the mother of Nabiac Rural and Hay’s owner Trish, said: “It was a great way to raise money for a good cause.” 

Wendy said Dave Callaughan of Gooch Agencies, who conducted the store’s opening ceremony, suggested the charity be the children’s ward. 

The store is now located on the site of the former Dyers Crossing Produce Store.

The produce store’s 110-year-old building was severely burnt in a fire in October of last year. 

Wendy said the building has since been demolished and they are in another building on the property. 

“We have more room than we had in Nabiac,” Wendy said. 

“Before when it rained it would be a mad dash to get the hay inside!”
