It’s building up to be a wonderful Wrapped in St Marys event this year!
A number of businesses and community organisations are participating – more than in 2012, which is great.
Some have even offered discounts on presentation of the program!
Street art, exibitions, the annual car show and more are on offer.
AND the latest news is that there will be a shuttle bus service around the streets, thanks to Community Transport Services Tasmania. Great for anyone who isn’t as mobile as they would like to be!
The program also includes details about where to eat, where to stay and even where to go to church on Sunday.
Time to start making plans to come and stay for a great weekend! And don’t forget your winter woollies …

Help us put our beautiful town and valley ON THE MAP!
Recently, I blogged about the strong possibility for ongoing funding for our Wrapped in St Marys event.
And the good news is …
We have secured funding for 2013, and as an annual event thereafter!
Many thanks to Break O’Day Council, which has agreed to provide ongoing funding.
Now the preparations will begin – more soon!
i’ve been silent for a while, mainly because we’re waiting on some important news
recently we were encouraged to apply for funding to our local council so we could make wrapped in st marys an annual event
after filling in the application we’ve been told by a council officer that our application has been approved in principle
hooray – this is fantastic news!
the council meeting is on monday 17 december – i can’t wait to hear what their final decision is …
as i mentioned in a previous post, the winners of the annual Greater Esk Tourism Photographic Competition were announced at a special function on 14 November 2012
the photo which attracted the most votes from the public is entitled autumn with a touch of winter, by peter troode
it’s not difficult to see why this lovely photograph topped the list
owen hughes, who selected a winner for the main prize (fingal artist maggie fletcher), is shown below (right) with peter and the photo which won him the viewer’s choice award
there were a large number of entries this year, so it would not have been an easy task to either judge or vote which was the best photograph
stay tuned to find out what the theme will be for 2013!
… maggie fletcher from fingal with her stunning photograph entitled frosted webs
maggie is a talented artist who is well known for her wonderful paintings and drawings, including miniatures
a well-deserved win, i think you’ll agree!

here in oz it’s still winter, but a hint of spring is in the air
these photos were taken within about 15 minutes at around 4 pm one afternoon this week
in this one, i tried to capture the quality of light filtering through the branches of a large gum tree
the sky was amazing, with the sunlight and the clouds interracting and changing all the time
