THE Save the Heart of Federal campaign is hoping to get through a tin of red paint in its efforts to raise the $220,000 necessary to buy the village's Anglican church from the Grafton diocese.

On Saturday campaign organisers unveiled a "Cashometer" during its highly successful Bookfair held at the church and neighbouring hall.

The Cashometer looks like a giant thermometer, with a red bulb at the bottom and amounts of money marked in black at the sides.

The campaign has already raised $60,000, and Saturday's Bookfair, cake stall and sausage sizzle was another chance to test the community's "temperature".

Book bargain hunters got there early on Saturday and took full advantage of the five books for $15 offer.

There was some intense competition going on as people made their way along the trestle tables packed with books of all shapes, sizes, authors and genres.

It was judged an outstanding success and combined to add a further $4000 to the coffers.

Painters will have to get out the red paint tin to make a new mark on the Cashometer which is bound to come out at subsequent events including a three-day festival scheduled for May.
