Ms Niglia said special mention must go to Fresh Cheese Company and Tatura Milk for contributing dips and cheese to the tables.

Ms Niglia said much needed funds were raised for the local community, tennis club and for general up-keep of the hall and tennis courts.

‘‘Congratulations to Rachele Smith who won the major prize — a deserving winner who has recently settled in the area from the USA.
‘‘Second prize went to another local, Melinda Holmes. Well done to our lucky winners.’’
