Friday was a busy but I believe a successful day, “rugging up” Benalla. The majority of the installation was complete by around 3:30 on Friday. This included installations on trees and bollards along Mair, Nun and Carrier streets.
Saturday a small group checked the installation and made adjustments and additions as available. This included some extra bollards covered in Carrier Street and a few repairs. Thanks to everyone who contributed, and particularly to those who helped with installation activities. A special thank you to the ANZ bank volunteers who did so much of the installation work.
In general everyone was positive about our effort. One gentleman even commented that it felt it warmed up the town. So good work to everyone.
There are also some decorations outside Cooinda, the Uniting Church and out in Swanpool. So get out and have a look around.
Over the next few weeks, we need to keep an eye on the installation and make repairs if necessary. We do not want things to start looking untidy – not a good look for our town. If you see a problem, and you cannot fix it yourself, please contact Benalla Yarnbombers directly via Facebook or email and we will forward your message.
The removal of the work will take place on 31 August. Please contact Benalla Yarnbombers directly via Facebook or email and we will forward your message.
Well done to all.
