Narrogin is set to hold a winter ball this July, after town librarian Kay Weaver took it upon herself to make it happen.

“It’s been humming away in my head that we should have a ball or a dinner- dance,” Ms Weaver said.

“In the country there’s not a lot of opportunity to get dressed up.

“We really need somewhere where people can get their fancy clothes out and enjoy a proper sit-down meal, as well as enjoy the bar and dance and just have a great time.”

Ms Weaver hopes to hold the event in the town hall, saying there should be room for 140 attendees under COVID-19 restrictions.

She said the proposal had drawn a very positive reaction around town, with 50 people already tentatively booked in for the event.

“We’ve even been contacted by groups of people from Perth who want to come and be involved,” she said.

The committee, comprising a group of eager community members, met last night to work on the arrangements.

“I’d love to get some more young people involved with the committee for that great young positive input and energy,” Ms Weaver said.

“I think it’ll be great. It’s something that doesn't happen all the time and it’s something that people are asking for.”
