The town has been the focus of a television documentary which will screen on ABC television for the next six weeks.

And the local residents are planning a gala launch in true Hollywood style to mark the occasion.

It is expected the entire population of the town will also turn out at the local hall to watch the first episode this evening.

The launch of the documentary ‘A Country Town Rescue’ is the result of 12 months of filming, and more than 300 hours of taped footage, capturing Trundle’s project to entice more people to come and live in the town.

What began as a result of Trundle’s Strategic Plan – to ensure Trundle’s sustainability – the Tree Change project has seen five new families settle and live in Trundle.

They are vibrant members of the Trundle community and have brought with them a variety of skills, interests and personalities ensuring the spirit of Trundle is alive and well.

Zapruder’s other films have been making the observational documentary about this experience, and have followed several of the families as they moved to Trundle and began their new life in a country town.

This six part series airs this evening and the Trundle community is celebrating with a red carpet launch.

A private reception will begin at 6pm for those people who have made the project possible, and to celebrate the achievements of Trundle Tree Change.

Following this, at 7.30pm the entire Trundle community has been invited to the Trundle Memorial Hall to watch the first episode live on the big screen.

Audio Visual equipment is being brought from Orange, and the hall will resemble the finest function centres in Hollywood!

One of the organisers of the Tree Change project, Cherie Quade said the entire community is excited about the big day.

“The focus will certainly be on Trundle,” she said, “with many media organisations coming.”

“ABC Radio will have a live broadcast for its morning program with Angela Owens, as well as for the Rural Report, and will also have report for its Night Time show.

“Today/Tonight is also doing a follow-up and we will have speakers on the night from ABCTV.”
