Jacaranda Display

The Grafton Jacaranda Festival is normally held during  late October and  early November. This year the festival has been  reduced in scope and postponed until December subject to the continuing Covid 19 health restrictions.

Following some discussions, there was consensus within the CVWA that we would not proceed with our (more or less) annual Jacaranda display – primarily due to uncertainty regarding restrictions and access..

The CVWA instead took the advantage of an empty shopfront in the Grafton Link arcade to have a ‘pop-up’ display of members work.

Steve Dodd, Roy Ellery and Colin Lang set up the display with more than 50 items of members work on show. The display highlighted the quality and diversity of members work – ranging from Steve’s wonderful music bench through Bill Andrew’s model semi-trailer, Bob Holder’s carvings and Roy Ellery’s turned bowls – plus more splendid work by other members.

The display ran for a month, from October 6 through November 3 and was well received, with club fielding many inquiries from the public.
