KICK up some dust for farmers struggling through drought at the Attunga Landcare Raindance.
The reboot of the group came when residents realised a sense of community in the small town was slowly slipping away.
Plus, it was a good excuse to get off the farm and hopefully bring in some rain sheep and cattle farmer Lorraine Abra said.

“We said we’d have a barbecue at someone’s place but it’s grown into this huge event on Saturday,” she said.

“We’ve been buying feed and having to feed stock and it’s pretty expensive, we’ve been lucky to get a few showers and at least it’s given us a bit of respite.”
Fire trucks, supper, snow cones, a sausage sizzle and entertainment are all on offer at the completely free event.
All crowds need to bring to the event is their own drinks on Saturday November 17 from 5pm at the Attunga Community Hall.
