The Hepburn Shire is a major sponsor of the Art Show. Their provision of free access to the Town Hall for The Art Show is fundamental to the success of the Show. Further, we are delighted that recently, the Council spruced up the garden, paths and building, with a promised follow up ready for our Art Show,
