post Community Market Encore!

August 30th, 2008

Filed under: Events — newseditor @ 7:39 pm


Beneath dramatic rain clouds today’s first Community Market was a great success, raising money for the new art gallery and stallholders. Moggsie’s cakes were a hit as usual, Siobhan received lots of generous support for her Blessed Broodmare fundraiser, which has been extended to be drawn on September 30th, and there was an excited run on plants, bags, toys and handmade goodies. It was great to see people from Leigh Creek and further afar.

We’re celebrating the success with an encore this weekend, Saturday September 6th, 11am – 4pm at 33 Railway Terrace East, Copley.

If you’re ready for a spring clean of your wardrobe, a tidy up of your craft corner or sharing some fresh produce or some other goodies, feel free to join us with stall for a $10 donation, or drop in with some pocket money and some friends and check out the range of fresh fruit, plants, vege seedlings, original framed artworks, toys, bags, fresh cakes, handcrafts, trash and treasure and antique collectables.

Stay tuned for notices of the Community Market continuing on a monthly basis!

    Well john munford…where were you to help the people who donated their time and effort for the community market? Did you come and support it?…no????? I believe there was quite a crowd at the caravan park that day….was anyone informed that the market was happening???? or did the beautiful signs get taken down yet again??? i guess what is good for the goose…is not good for the gander!!!!!
    we all had a wonderful time, made some money and enjoyed the beautiful rain as well. You missed a great event….I do believe it is called ‘cutting off your nose to spite your face’…guess you missed out.
    If we all worked together for this community, can you imagine how successful all events could be?
