Kids set to catch a big one

BIGGENDEN children have been hooked on fishing, with the Lifestyle Kids Fishing Day on March 6 already booked out.

The fishing day, held by the Biggenden Amateur Fishing Club and Sunwater at Paradise Dam, aims to teach basic fishing skills to children aged seven to 13 years.

Environmental conservation and the social responsibilities of recreational fishing are also outlined, and there will be lots of fishing fun.

For those who have missed out, a follow-up Take a Kid Fishing Day is planned for April 10.

Biggenden Amateur Fishing Club spokesperson Ruth Rokesky said bookings for the fishing day in April were set to open soon.

Volunteers needed

CHILDERS and Gin Gin residents who want to lend a hand in a time of disaster are invited to be part of a Red Cross training day in Bundaberg on March 20.

“We don’t have any volunteers in those areas,” Red Cross Bundaberg branch president Helen Guppy said.

“It is important because those areas can be isolated in time of flood, which means our trained volunteers in Bundaberg cannot make it in.”

The training day will focus on teaching volunteers how to provide personal support during a disaster.

The day will run from 8.30am to 4pm from the SES building on 7 Kendall Street.

For more information, telephone 4152 1412.

Art by five Foxes

AN exhibition by the five Fox sisters, who were born and educated in Mundubbera, will open at the Mundubbera Art Gallery this afternoon at 4pm.

The exhibition is entitled Wings to signify the sisters’ first flight into the art world with their first show.

The paintings explore the sisters’ love of nature, heavily featuring butterflies, birdlife and other winged creatures.

An afternoon tea will be served at the opening.
