Cinderella dress wins at Woodenbong

FIVE months creative labour paid off for Woodenbong youngster Jordyn Allwood who took out the Juvenile Exhibit of the Woodenbong Show yesterday with her amazing ‘Cinderella’ dress.

Made with dyed Chux wipes and chicken wire, the masterpiece of recycled fashion was a highlight of the 19th annual show, officially opened by Thomas George, MP for Lismore.

The Chainsaw Racing was a hugely popular event once again this year, attracting a large crowd of spectators and included a ‘Jack and Jill’ event which consisted of teams working together to get a log ripped by the chainsaw and then wedged and split to win.

The show provided outstanding exhibits, events and attracted a huge crowd.

Supreme Exhibit of the show was a patchwork quilt made by Mrs Marlene Clements.

In the Outdoor Pavilion the overall winner was Ivy Reid in the Pot Plants section.

In the Photography Section the winner was Aleesha Aldis-Fried-richs. Sallyann Scarlett won people’s choice.

Supreme Exhibit of the show for the cattle section was on debut: Triple M Scotty from the Triple M Stud at Rukenvale, run by Craig and Renae Gapes.

The equestrian events were a showcase of beautifully groomed horses.
