Popular breakfast television show Sunrise will be helping to sell a positive message about Greater Shepparton during a series of live weather crosses tomorrow.

The Sunrise weather crew will broadcast regularly from 6am from Shepparton Motor Museum at Kialla’s Emerald Bank and members of the public are invited to join the festivities.

Committee for Greater Shepparton chief executive Matt Nelson said the Sunrise team would be reunited with its Mr Whippy van, which had found a new home at the museum after spending the summer travelling the country.

‘‘It is also an opportunity to spread the word about the positive things that are happening in the region,’’ Mr Nelson said.

‘‘We would certainly welcome any families that want to come along.’’

Mr Nelson said Shepparton had been in the national spotlight recently with the plight of uncontracted growers and SPC Ardmona’s battle for government support for survival.



He said the committee wanted to counter any negative impressions about the region. He said the Goulburn Murray region was again the leading milk producer in the country, Pactum had just commissioned a $42million UHT milk plant in Shepparton and this year the iconic Furphy name would celebrate 150 years of continuous business in Shepparton.

‘‘We have a very positive story to tell about the region,’’ he said.

Museum curator Graeme Balfour said the live crosses would also provide great exposure for the museum, a growing tourism drawcard for the city.
