Roadworks: Council will be undertaking road resurfacing works to Bent Street Wingham, between Isabella and Farquhar Streets from Monday, May 19 to Friday,  May 23, weather-permitting.

Program change: THE Bonnie Wingham Scottish Festival committee advises that, due to circumstances beyond its control, there will be no separate céilidh (Scottish concert) on the Sunday afternoon this year (June 1).

Africa festival: A diverse group of local women is working together on the second Africa Comes to the Manning festival to be held May 18-25.  Together, they established Manning Cultural Connections (MCC), a network of volunteers who seek to promote inclusive cultural exchanges in the Manning Valley. The network has tapped their bounty of resources to create what promises to be a lively festival at the Manning Art Gallery. 

Good jam: Manning River Times photographer, Scott Calvin recently found Pat Byram at Wingham Farmer's Market after spotting a bold red ribbon from the 2014 Sydney Royal Easter Show. The coveted highly commended prize was for Pat's fig jam and the accolade warranted a trip to Sydney to collect the ribbon.
