REJOOV Salon to Open 14th May It’s been 25 years since Wedderburn had a Hair & Beauty Salon in the High street. After almost a year of hard work by a dedicated group of volunteers from a cross section of the community, their vision is becoming a reality. On 14th of May 2019 the Rejoov Salon will open at 75 High street Wedderburn. Rejoov will offer the town the services of a Hairdresser, Barber, Beauty and Massage, with facilities for nails and more in the future. This venture is unique in that the capital funding the project is all locally sourced through donations from the community members, the Loddon Shire Council and the auspicing body Wedderburn Community House. Local resident, Robyn Vella started the venture simply by putting a post on facebook asking if anyone else felt the town needed a salon on the High street. The response was so large that she then approached the Wedderburn Community House and the adventure began. The perfect location was found at 75 High street; a shopfront that was the milk bar for many years, but has been empty for some time. The premises needed quite a bit of work carried out to turn it from a dilapidated empty shop into a delightful salon, where clients will feel pampered. Local tradesmen stepped up to the task, working tirelessly 7 days a week to get the structural work completed in time for the opening. Local residents didn’t just support the community enterprise though financial donations, they stepped up to help repair, clean, paint, find the perfect decor items/furnishings. Volunteers showed true commitment getting the salon ready, travelling distances to help, coming straight from a night shift to paint all day; we even had visitors to the town give up a couple of days of holidays to lend a hand. The community has been committed right throughout the project, making this a true community enterprise. As a rent a chair business, the community owns the salon business and rent out space to various practitioners. Before business even opens Rejoov has a Barber, Hairdresser/Waxing, Massage therapist, with more people applying to join the team. “This is a very exciting project for the town and may lay the foundations for bringing back other essential services to small rural communities like Wedderburn”, said Wedderburn Community House Coordinator Marg van Veen. “One of the wonderful characteristics of this town is their determination. They’re not going to wait for someone to come along, they are taking matters into their own hands, supporting local businesses and providing a future for our young people”. Next time you are visiting Wedderburn be sure to drop into Rejoov for a hair cut, shave, or even a massage. For opening times and to book appointments check out Rejoov Salon’s facebook page.
The first market for the year at Jacka Park (Soldiers memorial Park) saw many new stall holders, with two of the most novel being Jude Hannah’s Red Dog Chillies and miniature piglets.
There were in fact many new stall holders ranging from garden art to horse saddles, as well as our old favourites. Amongst our regulars we had Mick and Liza selling their delicious donuts to raise money for Wedderburn College. They sold a staggering 120 donuts to raise $200 for the school. That would have been a very early start for our bakers as everything they sell is fresh. What a wonderful community gesture. Next they will be donating their donuts for the Redbacks Auction on the 15th April. Make sure you buy some to support the redbacks.
The cutest stall on the day had to be these miniature piglets that are trained to walk on leads and sit when commanded. Has been breeding the miniatures to sell as pet and assures me they won’t grow any bigger than 60cm in height.
Two oinkers going for a walk.. and a sit.
Almost as cute was Jude Hannah’s stall selling all things chilli, with her new company Red Dog Chillies. Jude was also selling some of her home grown veggies including pink watermelons. Yum.
Table of produce
The market also had numerous bric-a-brac stalls selling clothes, jewellery, household items as people who could not be a part of the garage sales decided to have a stall instead.
There was a slight panic when Artisan Bread van didn’t arrive till late. They had a breakdown and had to await another van. Not wanting to let their loyal customers down, they still arrived before the end of the market and sold out as usual.
I can’t wait for the Easter Market where we will have Bendigo band Wild Nation performing, a busking competition and a Vintage Fashion Show & Auction. Should be a great morning of entertainment. Hope to see you all there.
Wedderburn Masquerade Ball 2018: Those that attended the Ball were treated to another fantastic evening of old time music by the famous Wedderburn Old Timers and Cheryl Bailey. Whether you dance or not, the band alone is worth the night out. We thank Cheryl, Glenda, Morrie and Adrian for their beautiful music over the past four years.
Some of this years Deb set were there practising their dances and looked lovely in their outfits and masks. We saw quite a few new faces this year, both local and visitors to the town. Everybody loves an excuse to dress up and this is possibly the sparkliest event in town with bejewelled dresses, such as Rebecca Buschmann’s beautiful blue gown, jewelled masks and jewelled table decorations.
Dede always ensures the night provides opportunities for those just learning and those who are proficient dancers, with dances ranging from the Tangoette and Marilyn right through to the Cheeseburger. Very popular are the line style dancers which saw virtually everyone on the dance floor. The evening is always fun with games, competitions and a huge country supper in the middle of the night to build up the energy to keep dancing till the end.
Visitors to this years dance enjoyed meeting local people and the relaxed atmosphere for which the dance in known. With a shortage of men to partner with, everyone just danced with everyone and the couple of visiting men were danced off their feet through out the night.
