Sheep shearer Steve Bindoon will have some tips for people owning sheep.

For the second year running, educator and sheep shearer Steve Bindoon will take the weight off and give the local livestock a basic health check at Gidgegannup Showgrounds from 8.30am to 4.30pm on Saturday, August 22.

The Rotary Club wants to help people who own a few sheep and have difficulty getting someone to come and shear them. Mr Bindoon, of Kelmscott, said owners could learn more about the care and management of their livestock. A small service fee of $10 per sheep is payable to cover the costs.

Any profit will go towards community projects run by Rotary.

Families are welcome to watch and enjoy a sausage sizzle, but dogs are not permitted because they are likely to spook the sheep.

Call Donna on 0419 048 477 to book a shearing time.
