Paul Webster, Harbour Master/Pilot, Port Authority of NSW said the Port Authority was proud to be a major sponsor of the festival.

“The annual festival has been drawing crowds for 22 years now and this year should be no exception.

We can’t wait for our town to come alive with music, markets, performances and the famous parade — it really is a celebration of our community,” Mr Webster said.

Old made new again.

The Repurpose competition encourages people of all ages to make something useful out of recycled materials of any kind.

The competition is also a great fit to the Port Authority’s values and goals.

“For the second year, the Port Authority is also sponsoring the fantastic Repurpose competition. One of our key roles is to protect our pristine port environment and this recycling competition is a creative and colourful way to raise awareness about sustainability and the need to reuse, reduce and recycle,” Mr Webster said.

Let your imagination run wild and start making now! Make art, furniture, clothing, jewellery or a major sculptural piece. It can be functional or conceptual, anything that has been re-purposed is welcome.

This is a great activity for schools and clubs to participate in or at an individual level.

Enter the competition by downloading the Repurpose 2018 Entry Form and returning it to the festival committee by October 26th.

Let your imagination run wild!
