“This is always a lively event and is ideal for a family day out. We’d love to see people turn up dressed for the occasion in Country and Western outfits. We’ve had a fantastic response in the past and we hope to continue putting on large scale events. We’re really grateful to all of our sponsors and we encourage people to make donations to help support our well loved events. “
