IT’S one of the biggest social events of the year, the Nundle Bush Bash.
At Nundle Country Women’s Association Preschool, the prawn and chicken nights of the past flourished into something far more exhilarating.
Director Maura Burke said the preschool has been going for more than 50 years.
“A few years ago someone asked for something inclusive of the children so we came up with a bush dance that the whole family can come to,” she said.
“It’s a good way for people to get out and talk during drought times and relax with family.”
In a small town like Nundle, it’s not surprising attendance at the preschool is generational.
Some of the children who attend had their grandparents and parents go too.
“I find you get to know the family’s very well, they’re all very proactive and most of our parents garner support and get us going,” Ms Bourke said.
“You do a things like the heel toe polka, it’s really old style dancing and good fun, the community gets together and the children love it.”
The event was held on Saturday September 15 with prizes, raffles auctions and a lucky door prize to raise funds for the preschool.
