It’s been a great/incredible festival so far. Here are a few photos of visitors to the Festival who have used our free bike loan service. More photos from the MASG festival file will be up soon, and also see the ABC festival site which has some good pics and stories.

Still to come:

* Friday 10.30am at the Hub – story teller Sue Bailey from Isle of Wight, England, plus hot cross buns, excellent tea or coffee and visit the bountiful providore,
* Saturday from 10 – 2. Last day for the Providore – sample the incredible range of good food and drinks, all from our local area,
* Sunday from 10 – family fun in the Botanical Gardens, Castlemaine, with MASG members running the wash-against-waste trailer to reduce the use of disposables and our MASG info stall.


*The Easter Lights for the Maldon Easter Festival will be powered by wind sourced accredited GreenPower organised by MASG and supplied by Origin Energy.

*MASG Office will be short staffed next week due to Ian on Leave, Bron working elsewhere and Dean involved in meetings/post festival clean up. Please be patient we are not in the office/able to quickly answer the phone. Leave a message and we will get back to you.

Final word

For all those festival romances…..

“And the best and the worst of this is,
That neither is most to blame,
If you have forgotten my kisses,
And I have forgotten your name”
A.C Swinburne (from An Interlude)
