Spring time means show time at Wudinna

Welcome to the first week of Spring, that means it's nearly showtime at Wudinna, so come and enjoy the show on Saturday, September 14.

We really appreciate the support from people across Eyre Peninsula that makes it such a great day.

This year the family-friendly show includes stalls, rides, twilight speed shear, pavilion, animals, horse events and much more. Thanks to the committee for continuing to add to the entertainment and activities to provide a great day and evening out.

For more information collect a free show book from the Wudinna Post Office or contact Mel Crosby on 0428 420 495.

The council will also have a stand at the show where people can call in and have a chat with councillors and staff.

The Eyre Highway streetscape is progressing well, lots of activity including base preparation of pavement and footpath areas, basin excavation work, crossovers, edge strips and spoon drains, etc.

This week councillors are donning hi-vis gear and checking it out with our works team and contractors.

Sadly, we did have to remove some additional trees as their health and stability were affected. The good news is council will replace these and more in the landscaping project, with powerline friendly species to make a green highway statement.

Talking about trees, we now have jacarandas planted at the entrance of the Wudinna Cemetery. I can't wait to see 'Jacaranda Avenue' in full bloom.

It's time to start thinking about nominations for the Wudinna District Council Community Australia Day celebrations.

If you would like to nominate someone, contact the council on 8680 2002 or admin@wudinna.sa.gov.au for the criteria and nomination forms. Nominations close 5pm, December 7.
