It’s time to dust off that fancy spring frock and gather some betting pennies for the Melbourne Cup.

This year, celebrations are expected to be better than ever with a two-course lunch and fashion parade at the Guyra Bowling and Recreation Club.

Styles from Armidale’s Noni B will be paraded by local ladies.

Noni B manager Rachel Murphy said some of the latest fashions will be on the catwalk with all proceeds on the day going to the Guyra Can Assist branch.

“We’ll have all new season fashion ranging from casual through to evening wear,” she said.

Tickets are $25 per person and are available at the Club.

There will also be prizes for best hat and dress, sweeps and a lucky door prize.
