A FAMILIAR face will organise the next Scone and Upper Hunter Horse Festival.
Lee Watts has been appointed president of the committee and will be joined by fellow members vice-president Kara Mitchell, treasurer Jayne Wintle and secretary Amanda Albury.
“Scone is the horse capital of Australia and this festival is a great way to showcase everything equine,” Mrs Watts said.
“I would like to encourage organisations to nominate a representative to join the committee to ensure that each event is showcased to its full potential in May,
“The festival is in its 35th year and has evolved from a simple street parade into a 17-day program of events for everyone.
“The aim is to provide many opportunities for our local community and valued visitors to celebrate the horse.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the committee and outgoing president Anne Davies for her enthusiasm and drive.”
Mrs Watts said the Scone and Upper Hunter Horse Festival committee, which is made up of volunteers, creates a festival for the community and the visitors alike.
“The economy generated from visitation during this time is invaluable for the town’s businesses whether it be tourism operators, not for profit organisations or shop fronts.
“The committee also invites sponsorship both large and small so please feel free to contact me direct if you would like to promote your business through sponsorship of this very worthy festival.
“Bumper stickers would be another means of sponsorship that may be of interest.
“The committee will be purchasing new banners that will brighten the main street leading up to the event.
“To keep up to date with information please look on the Scone and Upper Hunter Horse Festival Facebook page.”
If you would like to join the committee and be a part of creating another fantastic festival in May 2015, attend the next meeting on Wednesday, September 10, at the Upper Hunter Shire Council, 130 Liverpool Street, Scone.
