Crookwell Community Cruise revs up

The sun was shining on motorists as they roared out of Crookwell for the annual Crookwell Community Cruise held on Sunday.

The cruise started five years ago when a couple of mates, Andrew Clements and Michael Kennedy, decided to give back to the community. Each year they raise money for local people, organisations and charities.

"Mick and I are pretty passionate about it and we want to make it bigger and better every year," Mr Clements said. 

It is supported by the Ironmine Cruisers and on April 7 Mustangs, a Porsche, GT, Falcon Ute, Harleys and sports bikes drove close to 200 kilometres across the Upper Lachlan Shire and Goulburn Mulwaree.

"It was a top family day," he said.

"The weather was perfect, although there was a bit of head wind coming back from Taralga.

"I want to give a shout out to everyone who turned up on the day and a big, big thank you to everybody for their all generosity. "

There were 34 vehicles and 50 people who attended the lunch at Taralga Sports and Bowling Club. 

This year the cruise raised money for Ally Jaffrey and the final tally is expected to reach close to $2000.

"We want to thank Stuart Campbell from the Laggan Pub and the Taralga Sports and Bowling Club for their generous donations."

The raffles were supported by JD's Hardware, Elders, Landmark, Commonwealth Bank, IGA, Barry and Cheryl Storrier, Tuena General Store and TJC Products.
