For the past two years, members of a committee has been planning events that will celebrate 150 years of settlement at Bombay.


These celebrations will take place on the weekend of March 13, 14 and 15, 2015, beginning with a Friday night get-together, a Family Festival and Dinner on Saturday, finishing off on Sunday with a church service and bus tour of the district.

Michelle Knight, secretary of the organising committee, says registrations for the weekend are now open.

“We have had some registrations come in already,” says Michelle,” but strangely, the majority have come from outside of the area.

“There has been one from Canada and others have come from Auckland and beyond.”
