Practice for the inaugural under-16 interstate championships is underway at Moonbi Showground, with New South Wales and Queensland going head-to-head tomorrow. Organisers say the game will be a chance to fine-tune skills – the championships will be the first competitive event for many players. (FILE VISION ONLY)

COMMUNITY TOUCH GAME TO CELEBRATE NAIDOC WEEK

There will be some sore legs tonight, after many young Tamworthians took part in a three-hour touch football game. The game was part of a family fun day, held at the Gipps Street fields, for NAIDOC Week. “It’s another opportunity for them to witness Aboriginal culture being celebrated and it’s a positive and accepted experience throughout NAIDOC week.” It was also a chance for local police and firefighters to come together with members of the local community. “It’s too often that we see those services in points of crisis and it’s nice to join them and build some good relationships in a time where it is actually more appreciated.” (VISION AND AUDIO IN PARTS)

COUNTRY STARS TO SING FOR DROUGHT RELIEF

As the big dry continues, country music stars are rallying around the regions’ farmers with a drought relief concert. It’s part of the ‘Are You Aware, We Care’ drought appeal. Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to farrmers and their families, through the Salvation Army. “The concert will be headlined by country music superstar Lee Kernaghan, as well as a lot of local country music stars such as the Crosby Sisters, Ashleigh Dallas, Pixie, Lyn Bowtell.” Food donations are also rolling in for farming families – with collection points filling up across the city. “At this present stage government support hasn’t come through, we have to do it as a community.” The concert will be held at West Tamworth Leagues Club on Sunday, July 22.
