This Easter, fireys and their friends are in for a treat at the Trawool Fire Station, south of Seymour.

A fantastic art exhibition will be officially opened by Chief Officer Euan Ferguson on Thursday 28 March at 6.30pm, and then continues from 10.30am to 4.30pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Eight local artists will be showing around 100 pieces of artwork. In fact, the exhibition is called ‘GR8 ART’, and it certainly will be!  All artwork is for sale, with a commission on all sales being donated to Trawool brigade.

Plus wine and cheese…

Two wineries will also be at the station to offer tastings and to sell their beautiful, locally grown wines. The Trawool Valley Vineyard, under the tender care of John and Julie Farrer, could not be more local, and Brave Goose Vineyard Whiteheads Creek, run by the Stocker family, is just down the road. 

Ross Williamson − otherwise known famously in many stores as ‘Yea Cheese’ − is generously donating a variety of cheeses to go with the lovely wines. Ross is a long-term member of the neighbouring Yea brigade.

Make a note of the dates – 28 to 31 March − and do drop in. It's going to be a great festival!
