THERE will be everything from smooth jazz to an inflatable smoke house when the Perthville Village Fair is held this Saturday. 

The popular annual event will be raising funds to go to the upkeep of the Perthville Community Hall and grounds.

”Apart from the usual high quality handicrafts stalls, local honey and preserves, baked goods and kids’ activities such as face-painting and a jumping castle, barbecue and raffle, we have a couple of new attractions this year,” Victoria Tuson of the Perthville Neighbourhood Group said.

The Bathurst Academy of Music stage band will perform and Perthville/Georges Plains Rural Fire Service will hold its open day at the fair as part of Get Ready Weekend. 

Members of the brigade will bring an inflatable smoke house with them so fair-goers can practise what to do in the event of a fire in the home.

The Sisters of St Joseph will run two guided tours of the Perthville Convent Heritage Centre during the day, starting promptly at 11am and 1pm at the cost of $5 a head. Tours will run for an hour.

“Perthville Neighbourhood Group thanks the generous sponsors of our raffle this year, with the top prize being a night’s accommodation at Rydges Mount Panorama and breakfast for two thanks to 2BS/B-Rock FM,” Ms Tuson said. 

Tickets will be available on the day.

“Come for a bacon and egg roll breakfast from 9am or a sausage sizzle lunch and enjoy the band and the wonderful craftspeople of our local area,” Ms Tuson said.

“There really is something for everyone.”

The Perthville Village Fair will be held this Saturday, September 8 from 9am to 3pm at the Perthville Community Hall.
