Envirofair postponed

Wet weather has hampered plans for Saturday’s Envirofair with organisers postponing the event until June 24.

“It’s a bit of an anti climax,” said co-ordinator Jo Wallace.

“We’ve had to do this before and it’s no-one’s fault.”

With the weekend forecast showing more rain on the way Jo and the 2BOB Radio team are confident they have made the right decision. 

They are currently in the process of informing stall holders and performers of the new arrangements and Jo is hopeful it will all work out.

“In two weeks it will be better, hopefully the sun will be shining and it will be warm.”

The 26th Envirofair will now be held on Saturday June 24 at Taree Park near the 2BOB radio station.
