Message from our President

Very simple message today - “thank you for allowing me the privilege of serving as President for the past two years”.
I have enjoyed the role very much and certainly feel we have achieve some worthy goals as a club, not withstanding some impediments beyond our control.
I wish Helen all the best for the next 12 months and am pleased to be part of her team.
Regards and all the best,
Geoff Gledhill

Market Report June 27, 2021
Team: Grant, Tim, Alan and Karin Other helpers: Bill Chapman and Steph Visitors: Geoff Gledhill Number cars in queue: 2+ Number O’night parkers: Nil Market report: A very empty market, probably due to school holidays, lifting of Covid restrictions and the expected inclement weather that didn’t eventuate. In fact by 1030 it was sunny and the pedestrian traffic picked up. Quite a lot of people signed in using the sheets so there should be more than one sign-in spot. Please remember not to sell casual stalls for following weeks - it has the potential to cause problems.
