Can anyone spare a sheep?

ORGANISERS of Jindabyne Central School's Easter Saturday fete are searching for a benefactor to donate a sheep to the school.

They plan on making the sheep the mascot of the Easter fete and are hoping everyone who walks through the gates will take a punt on how much the sheep weighs.

The person closest to the correct weight gets to keep the woolly mammal, which may come to be known affectionately as Lamb Chop.

Don't worry, the school will organise for the sheep to be delivered ready for the barbecue and your butcher's bills will be a thing of the past.

It's the first time in four years Jindabyne Central School will hold a fete and organisers are hoping visitors to the area will join locals at the school on Easter Saturday.

A big day of activities and entertainment are planned including a jumping castle, dance performances, white elephant, food stalls, garden stall, lucky dip and fresh produce.

Local SES, fire, police and ambulance officers will hold demonstrations.

Money raised at the fete will go towards buying a new school bus fitted with seatbelts and musical resources for the school.

Everyone is welcome to Jindabyne Central School fete, Park Road, on Saturday March 30 from 9am-3pm.

Enquiries and donations can be made through the school.
