Bringing back the beanies

You see them everywhere from junior soccer to first grade football as they’re the must have winter accessory here in Blayney.

To celebrate the enduring charm and warmth of a knitted bonnet, the search is on for Blayney’s best beanie.

As part of the Winter Wonderland competition Blayney shire council will be hosting a photo competition on Facebook to discover just who has the best Blayney beanie.

Be it handmade, shop bought or a highly accessorised commercial beanie, the search for the best head warmer is on, and business is getting behind the competition as well, with a large number of businesses donating prizes for the best beanies around.

Council’s Community Development and Tourism Project Officer, Mel Monico said that the popular Blayney Beanie will also be making a welcome return.

“Look out for a new range of limited edition colours that will be available as a fundraiser at local Winter Wonderland community events and at the Blayney Shire Visitor Information Centre,” she said.
