Benalla Yarnbombers are happy to announce that the Council have approved our application to run the Benalla Rugged Up yarn bombing event in August. We have only a couple of minor logistical plans to complete and then we are all set to go ahead. Our plans for this year are slightly altered from previous years (and our initial thoughts before COVID-19 issues). But we are well advanced in preparing the materials for bollards, seat backs and bike racks. We still need to look at what level of coverage we can manage for the trees and perhaps the pergola posts.
If you do have any materials for use this year, please give me a call to discuss pick up or delivery. As I mentioned in a previous update we decided that we could not ask outlets around town to act as drop off points. And as we do not have anywhere for construction activities, can only use completed items this year – just completed strips (narrow and wide), beanies or bollard covers.
Finally, we do not have the out of town volunteers for the installation activity. If anyone is able to assist with this activity on the afternoons of 1st and/or 2nd August, please let me know. Because of the distancing restrictions, we may need to look at rostering, so please let me know when and for how long you can help.
Thank you for your support in previous years and this year, and we look forward to seeing a bright display around town during August.

The good news – we are still hoping that Benalla Rugged Up 2020 will go ahead, with some adjustments. We need to keep in mind the restrictions that may still be in place. Certainly maintaining physical distancing will be necessary. But we think that the town will need the brightening far more this year.
With this in mind, we have taken the following decisions and steps:
If you have any questions, please give me a call or send an email.
