Children can get a better view of the Wellsford School Ag and Gala Day this year as it hosts a climbing wall for the first time. The event will be held at Wellsford School on October 28, from 9am to 1pm. Food on offer will range from mussel fritters to tea and cake. A quick-fire raffle will be run and a silent auction with a truckload of gravel up for grabs. Wellsford students will be bringing along their calves, rams and goats for judging. The event usually attracts between 300 and 400 people but will have to compete with the Kowhai Festival Huge Day Out this year. It is expected to raise around $7000 which, will go towards shade cloths and general grounds expenses.
