Used to get tiger snakes in the Main Street of Werribee occasionally when I worked there, and the local snake catcher’s name was Charlie Lash. I kid you not @kelseyrettino Hope Mum stayed inside until this guy was apprehended! #lovegippsland @rharris334 @tpwkelly @TexPollster https://t.co/0Hweemf341

Happy winner!
One of the lucky winners of my local hampers is Casey Armstrong who shared my Great Gippsland Christmas post on Facebook.
Congratulations Casey - I’m sure you and your family will enjoy the great range of Gippsland produce and local wines. There’s even some yummy local biscuits for Nash and Leo to enjoy too.
Remember by shopping locally and supporting local businesses you’re helping to create jobs in our region! #lovegippsland

This month visitors to Badger and Hare in Stratford have been treated to a special exhibition in the old bakery building by Gippsland artist Jennifer Parker.
Jennifer has been working with wool for years and makes natural dyes to create wonderful and quite unique pieces of art.
The exhibition has been a great success and I am sure you will see Jennifer and her wonderful works in the region again soon.
