Two local girl guides have been awarded the organisations highest honours.
Beaufort guides Shae Amby and Bianca Gerrard are the first from their unit to be awarded the Queens Guide award in over 20 years.
They are among a small group of only 16 girls across Victoria to achieve the award this year.
Both girls have worked on the award for almost two years as members of the Beaufort Ranger Guides.
Beaufort’s historic band rotunda and railway station were among a number of buildings targeted by vandals on Saturday night.
An unknown individual or group took to the town with red and white spray paint, leaving their mark at several locations.
Graffiti was left on the rotunda, railway station, public toilets, Angels Café, Pyrenees Advocate, Golden Age Hotel and numerous fences and road signs around the town.
Local winery Blue Pyrenees has been judged as the producer of Australia’s finest sparkling wine.
Blue Pyrenees Midnight Cuvée 2010 was recognised by wine industry peers at the inaugural Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships.
Midnight Cuvée was in esteemed company with 10 Australian Sparkling Wines receiving gold medals.
