Silver City Show Secretary John Ralph said preparations were going well and the only change would be the absence of a printed show book. 

Mr Ralph said the committee decided to abandon the book for a website after the cost of making the books became too expensive.

“It was a pretty classic book, it was a good looking book, actually,” he said yesterday.

Mr Ralph said the website was made by local Logan Pascoe and the committee was very happy with how it turned out. 

“The good part about it is that it saves us a lot of work,” he said.

The Silver City Show this month would be just as good as last year’s, if not better, he said, because the Showmen’s Guild had promised some good rides.

Maintenance work has been done on the oval with fences and gates repainted, and the Futsal flooring in the Pavilion is being stripped out as workers make efforts to freshen up the building for stalls. 

There were also new food stalls this year including a Thai-themed one, and people will be spoiled for choice as the food court would be full, Mr Ralph said.

“People will get quite a surprise with the food court,” he said.
