Congratulations to our woodchoppers and high school students who competed at the (Brisbane) Royal National Agricultural Show.  The experience and friendships made will stand you all in good stead. Gerald William Youles was awarded the 2022 350mm Australian Underhand Championship.  Mum and Daughter competitors, Renee and Millie Retschlag came away from the EKKA with third and fourth in the final of the women’s underhand woodchopping championship.  Well done to all.

I was delighted to be asked to chair the election of new office bearers of the Somerset Art Society Inc.
