Bletchington Bash has all the trappings

THE Bletchington Bash is on tonight with a huge line-up of family friendly fun on offer for the community.

Come along for a pony ride or spin on the jumping castle or why not try out the adults only wine tasting and dessert cafe.

Each Bletchington Public School class will host a stall to raise money for school projects.

Teacher Mitchell Allen’s year five class will be responsible for manning the mousetrap minefield where participants can try their luck at setting off a mousetrap with a ping pong ball.

“Our stall is going to be the best,” year 5 student Lawson Hamling said.

“We can’t wait to see how people are going to test their skill at throwing the ping pong balls to set off the traps.”

The joint kindergarten classes stall will hold a jaffa smash, where jaffa lollys will roll past participants wielding giant mallets ready to stop - or smash them in their tracks.

Canobolas Rural Technology High School food technology students will run the dessert cafe, where tasting plates will be on offer.

Riding for the Disabled will host the much-loved pony rides.

Gum boot throwing, footy passing, a chocolate pool, lucky socks and hairspray  stalls will also cater for the young at heart.

There will also be a monster raffle with prizes including a 420 litre Kelvinator fridge donated by Electrolux.

“We’ll also have stalls manned by Ronald McDonald House and Donate Life, organisations who can give visitors information about local projects and support groups for families in need,” Parents and Citizens member Sam Te Rupe said.

The community is invited to tonight’s Bletchington Bash which runs from 4.30pm to 7.30pm.
