Hundreds of people flocked to town to discover a wondrous collection of historical and antique items at the Cobram Historical Society’s annual Antiques and Collectables Fair.

Held on Saturday and Sunday at the Civic Centre, society president Pat Kerr said more than 600 people came through the doors.

‘‘We had a very good fair, and people from far and wide, someone came from New Zealand, and we had people from Coffs Harbour, Kyneton, Melbourne and two from Adelaide,’’ she said,

‘‘We had a good crowd and people from Shepparton, Wangaratta and Kyabram, and the locals supported it really well as well.’’

Planning is now under way for next year’s event, which will be the 34th.

‘‘The stallholders were all very happy and people who came in the door thought it was a great,’’ Mrs Kerr said.

‘‘And as usual our cakes and food was very popular — every year its gets better and everyone commented on the cakes.’’

Cobram Secondary College students, families and friends helped man the cake stall, with a donation for their work going towards the school’s valedictory dinner.
