Annual Featherston Expo here to stay!

Kate Peters

The second Featherston Expo on 29 September at the Anzac Hall was a great success. I had the idea for this a couple of years ago, and for the second year running Indigo Freya has come up with great ideas and worked really hard to make it happen. She’s had a little help from me and a wonderful group of volunteers.

The ladies of Mini Mutts

Seventy-five Featherston clubs, interest groups and businesses set up stalls in Anzac and Kiwi Halls from 1pm to 5pm. Free tea, coffee and biscuits were provided throughout the afternoon, thanks to donations from local charities Featherston’s Own and The Lions Club of Featherston.

Fiona and Ian McComb from Brookside Villages

The fabulous Featherston Wāhine Singers and Rupert Watson on clarinet provided entertainment while onlookers supped. This is an annual event held at around the same time every year.

The Apiary brought natural alternatives for health and wellbeing
