An array of handmade goodies will be on display at the upcoming Goulburn Valley West Country Women’s Association group’s Creative Arts Exhibition to be held in Tatura.

Group president and exhibition coordinator Lyn Trezise said the event had been held annually for many, many years.

‘‘It includes the work of our seven branches,’’ Ms Trezise said.

‘‘Which are the CWA Potters — a Shepparton group, Mooroopna, Rodney, which is based in Tatura, Lancaster, Harston, Kyabram and Rushworth branches.’’

Ms Trezise said after a recent influx of junior members, they had also created a junior branch, and their work will also be on display.

‘‘Our junior girls will have a cake decorating display,’’ she said.

‘‘Some of the juniors are really great and junior numbers are flourishing.’’

With the help of CWA Potters member Gene Miles, who received assistance from several members, there will be a display of about 50 bed covers, which will be donated to the Kyabram Hospital.

A bridal display will also be on offer after Ms Trezise said she received a very special donation.

‘‘I had a lady donate a wedding dress and it was her mother’s and her mother actually made it,’’ she said, estimating the dress to be about 100 years old.

‘‘It’s amazing what these ladies bring out.’’

After the huge job of filing entries, Tatura’s Victory Hall will be adorned in an array of baked goods, flowers, craft, horticulture and much more.

■The event will be held on Sunday, October 1, and is open to the public from 10.30am to 4pm at Victory Hall, Hogan St Tatura.
