The annual Augusta Spring Show was held at the town’s Centennial Hall over the weekend, attracting crowds from around the region keen to catch the best of local arts, crafts and gardening achievements. 

Displays by Karridale and Augusta Primary Schools lined the walls of the hall which was packed with patrons enjoying the hospitality of show volunteers from local organisations. Award winning jams, preserves and chutneys were a big favourite with attendees gathering over the jars to check out the names attached to the winning entries.

In the hall’s entry foyer, an impressive array of metalwork and woodwork creations were on display showcasing the best work from the often quirky minds of local artisans while the huge floral exhibition proved top drawcard at the show. 

Crafty stuff: Quilts and needlework featured heavily in the art displays.
