Six Mansfield locals were among a competitive field at the Victorian Agricultural Society's Central & Upper Goulburn Group final held on April 14, at Seymour. Winners from last year's Mansfield Show VAS categories were invited to enter. Taking out first prize in the Spotlight Sewing Competition was our own Anne Ware with her tote bag. Ann pictured with her sash also won a $50 cash prize and the right to exhibit at the Royal Melbourne Show in September. Two of our younger exhibitors, Olivia Monichino won a second place with her decorated cup cakes and Talia Appleton was awarded a red sash as well for her essay on why country life was better than city life. Congratulations to all who entered. Hope to see your new entries at the 2018 Mansfield Show.
