WEST BLOWERING - This part of the district is beginning to present a splendid appearance like the 'Emerald Isle.' The crops are growing rapidly, and are 4.5 ins above ground. The weather has been nearly all that could be desired for the growth of the grass, which, if the cloudy weather continues, will be good cow pasture. Dairying will soon be in full swing and stock on the whole look remarkably well at the present time. Great havoc has been, made with poor 'Master Fox' by poisoning and shooting, but still they are plentiful in some parts. Rabbiting up this way, as well as everywhere else, are giving bunny a 'hot time,' and they are making good money.

1905 - BLOWERING.

The wheat crops in and around Blowering promise to give a splendid return. Stripping started on 30th inst. The maze crops, considering the late dry weather experienced look splendid, but another fall of rain would be hailed with delight.

WEST BLOWERING

THE first of a series of socials to be held at West Blowering, in aid of the R.C. Church Garden Fete (Blowering and Tumut Plains Stall), to be held on December 26, took place at Mr. E. Higgins residence on Friday night last. The threatening weather militated against the attendance.

The secretary, Mr. John Groves, was unable to be present owing to sickness, and his duties were carried out by the treasurer, Mr, Dave Stanfield, The floor was in excellent order and Mr. Jas Higgins directed the dancers, whilst Messrs D. Stanfield, W. Tindall and J. Higgins supplied the music. Refreshments were served at midnight, followed by the drawing of raffles. A cake, donated by Mrs. F. J Bourke, of East Blowering, was won by Milton Haydon, who redonated it and it was auctioned and reauctioned by Mr. Geo. Bridle, eventually falling to the bid of Mr. C. A. Oddy. It realised £2/17/6.

Dancing was afterwards resumed and continued with unabated vigor till the wee small hours. The gross proceeds from the function were £5/5/6, and the expenses 11/6. The treasurer has handed £4/14/- to the treasurer of the Blowering and Tamut Plains Stall. - (Ref- The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser (NSW : 1903 - 1925)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 24 September 1918 Page 2).

It is a great pity that the road from West Blowering to Yallowin is not classified, as there would be some chance of getting something done to this part of the road which is really in a bad state. I believe there has been 750 pounds voted for the West Blowering bridge and it should not be long before the tenders are called and let us hope that the next step will be to improve our road. - (Ref- Albury Banner and Wodonga Express (NSW : 1896 - 1939)(about) Previous issue Friday 5 August 1898 Page 16).
