Jack clocks on in logo competition

A YOUNG Tumbulgum school student has won a competition to create the logo for next year's inaugural Tumbulgum River Festival.

Tumbulgum Public School students drew pictures which they thought best represented the Tweed River at the village as part of the competition.

Residents voted on the drawings at the Tumbulgum Post Office and 11-year-old Jack Jeffery came out on top.

Tumbulgum River Festival Committee President Bill Willbrandt said Jack was very happy to win and receive a prize of a new watch.

“He is a nice young bloke; it was really good how the school kids got in to it, and I think they got a lot out of it.”

“He was stoked, he got his watch and couldn't believe it; it was a big surprise.”

Fundraising for the festival will continue tomorrow when the Condong Bowls Club hosts a barefoot bowls day from 9am. To play it costs $12.50, or $20 for a couple, and a family can participate for $40. Included will be lunch, raffles and prizes.

On Saturday, November 7 a Jazz on the Water cruise will also be held to fundraise. To book, call Mr Willbrandt on (02) 66 766 303.

River Festival will support Tumbulgum Public School and Murwillum- bah District Hospital.
