MULLIMBIMBY SHOW: 'Our best show ever'

JUDGES at the Mullumbimby Truck Show certainly didn't have it easy this year, with organisers saying that "you all deserved an award and you definitely made the judges job this year the hardest ever".

Organisers said it was the "biggest show to date".

Tipper of the Show award went to Pam Carwright's new 2018 Western Star, she works with Andrew Johnston Haulage while the Best Fleet Award went to Shoobridge Transport of Murwillumbah.
