From raffles to hat parades, Forbes turned it on last week to celebrate the first post COVID Easter and there was great weather and plenty of action.
Forbes Public School started it off last Thursday with their annual Easter Hat Parade with many outstanding entries. The Easter Bunny also made an appearance and a tremendous day was enjoyed by all who attended.
Our services such as churches and food and health were also in full operation providing support for many.In sport, the Forbes Platypii played their annual Brad Ridley Shield against Condobolin. While the result wasn’t important, the Women’s side won 35-15 and Men’s 45-5 and it was great to see people at the game and out and about.
Our bowlers entertained visitors from across the state for their annual Easter tournament and some 32 teams entered in what was a fantastic carnival while others simply strolled around the lake, had a swim, went riding, fishing or had a quiet time with family and friends. Others no doubt spent the time to catch up on rest after a busy year so far.
If anything, this Easter should give us a chance to reflect on all that has happened over the past year and to appreciate all we have and all we are.
However you spent your weekend or wherever you are, Happy Easter from everyone at the Forbes Phoenix!
