Five things to do

School holiday crafting

ARE you looking for some free family activities for the kids these school holidays?

Why not take them along to the 'Kids Get Crafty' workshops run by Spendless Shoes, located at the Central Highlands Marketplace.

Kids can join in the arts and crafts fun and decorate their very own notebook.

The workshop will run from 10am until 1pm today (July 12) just outside Spendless Shoes.

Bookings are not required, so just turn up.

Notebooks are available while stocks last so get in quick.

You'll find Central Highlands Marketplace at 2-10 Codenwarra Rd, Emerald.

Workers' karaoke is back

There will be prizes up for grabs at every single round, drink vouchers for those needing a bit of liquid courage, a $50 club voucher for the winner of each round and the grand total $250 club voucher for the grand final winner.
