Nearly 400 people began their weekend with a cosy country breakfast at Freestone Memorial Hall, in celebration of Warwick’s Jumpers and Jazz in July festival.

First-time visitors, former residents, and locals united for the special morning on Saturday 17 July.

Organisers noted that Covid-safe practices were in place, dining was both indoor and outdoor, and guests attended between 8am and 11am.

One visitor, the great-grandson of former Freestone State School head teacher Frank Pigram, Jim Robertson, travelled from Toowoomba with his wife to the event.

Frank Pigram served at the school between 1889 and 1904.
