Newbridge Winter Solstice Festival

The annual Newbridge Winter Solstice Festival is on this Saturday with the village gearing up for a big day and night of medieval fun, magic, food and music.

Marking the beginning of the Winter Wonderland promotion, the festival kicks off at noon with the street market, sword fights and Morris Dancers. The bonfire and burning of the wicker man is scheduled for 5pm.

The hotel will be open with hot meals to keep the insides warm.

Blayney a flat white free zone

Caffeine dependent visitors to Blayney were left standing bewildered, annoyed and incomprehensible that in a town as large as Blayney, none of the coffee shops were open on the Monday of the long weekend.

One visitor from Tumbarumba expressed to the Blayney Chronicle dismay that they would either have to sit in a hotel to have a coffee, or travel on to Millthorpe or Bathurst to be able to sit down to a civilised brew.

Sushi Exchange to open Monday

It’s been months in the planning and now those that love sushi will be able to indulge their sushi starved palates when the Sushi Exchange opens on Monday June 26.

Situated next to the Exchange Hotel, the store will be open from 9 – 5 Monday – Friday and 9 – 1.30 Saturdays. Closed Sundays.

The Magic Comb gets a makeover

The building has been used as a hairdressers for over 60 years and now regulars to The Magic Comb will be in for a few changes after owner Briohny Bright completes the transformation of the shop over this weekend and early next week.

New stations, a separate salon for men to get a quick cut in and a complete paint job are all just a few of the tasks that Briohny and her workforce will be in for over the next few days.
