New Era for The Royal

After fifteen years as our local publican Ross Townsend is bidding farewell to The Royal Hotel and is heading into retirement. Ross's father bought the pub back in 1970 and, after working as a mechanic in Blayney for a number of years, Ross took over the management in 2001. Ross has seen many changes in the hotel industry over the years but one of the highlights during that time was when the Royal was awarded “two schooners” in the SMH best food guide. We wish both Ross and Cheryl all the best in their retirement. Local cattleman Chris Stonestreet is the new owner of the Royal and Carcoarians look forward to welcoming the new publican and his staff as the Royal hotel enters a new era.

Carcoar Catches Its Breath

Now that the lycra has been peeled off and the running shoes deodorised the locals can again settle down to a gentler pace. The past fortnight has certainly been hectic with the Carcoar Show followed closely by the Carcoar Cup. As always the Show proved to be a strong drawcard with a great many visitors soaking up the sunshine and witnessing some extraordinary feats in the shearing pavillion and show ring. The recent Carcoar Cup running festival which was held last Sunday was also well attended with plenty of runners taking to the road for the various events and onlookers enjoying the great village atmosphere. Congratulations to the winnners and to all those that participated.
