Halfway Creek Markets

The 2019 Autumn market was quieter than usual with a few regular stall holders missing, the hall had an extended bric a brac stall which was well supported. Thanks to those who helped clear out some of our stored treasures.  There was plenty of bargains to be had and most enjoyed a cuppa and snack from Tony & Liz's upgraded kitchen. Raffle prizes (veggie/fruit/eggs packs) donated by Jacks Eggs won by Merilyn from Kungala; and Wendy from Kungala won an metal antique replica moneybox. The next Halfway Creek Community Hall Market will be held on Sunday 2nd June. Please come. Members of the Halfway Creek Rural Fire Brigade were on hand assisting with the market operation and ready to offer information on fire protection for your family, pets and property. If you need help with a hazard reduction burn please give us a call or talk to us at a future market.  The brigade is in need of new blood so if you could be interested please give us a call.
