Council will help as planning continues for Mid-Winter Botanica

COUNCIL has resolved to support Oberon Garden Club's concept for a Mid-Winter Botanica event and look for grant funding to assist.

Council will provide $500 'in kind' to assist in the printing of materials promoting the event.

At council's November meeting, Julie Huie and Lexi Kellam provided a presentation outlining their concept for a Mid-Winter Botanica event for Oberon.

The most likely timing for the festival has been established as the first weekend in July this year to coincide with the start of the school holidays.

The Malachi Gilmore Hall has been secured as the primary venue.

Oberon Garden Club will be approaching local and regional organisations, businesses and individuals for sponsorship.
