On Saturday and Sunday, as I've mentioned previously, Kyneton will host the first Lost Trades Fair. I was planning on posting a little more about it prior to now, but to be honest the organising/facilitating part has kept me away from the blog and very busy.
I just wanted to say a big thank you, prior to the event for all the support shown to us in the lead up to the event. It's been amazing. The Weekly Times, The Leader Newspapers, The Midland Express, Country Style Magazine, Green Magazine, The Guardian, The Herald Sun, ABC National Radio, ABC Radio Country Hour, ABC local - Australia All Over with Macca, Kyneton Connect and too many blogs and websites for me to mention.
Early this morning at Kyneton's Museum
Then just to cap it off this morning, Edwina Bartholomew, Ben and the whole film crew from Channel 7's Sunrise show, broadcast 6 separate live segments from Kyneton this morning, nationally, all focusing on our Lost Trades Fair this weekend. Wow.
Suffice to say our phone and email system has not stopped since. It gives us hope that we are on the right track with this. That people are interested in these important trades, that they care enough to not let them fade into obscurity.
So please get in your car, pump up the tyres on your bike, hop on a train, or even a plane and head to Kyneton this weekend and see, hear and experience real people making real things with their hands. It may just put a big smile on your face and inspire you. Hope to see you there….. cheers!
