Market down for a fun day
AN ART exhibition and market day is on in Lockington on Sunday.
The town’s preschool is hosting the event between 10am and 2pm at its home on Burns St, and advisory committee member Andria Coonerty said she could not wait for the day to arrive.
‘‘The day is one of our main fundraising activities to enable us to further develop our outdoor play areas and learning spaces at the preschool,’’ she said.
‘‘It will be a collection of our 3- and 4-yearold groups’ art work, with students individual canvases available to purchase as well as a silent auction being held for group canvases done by the 3- and 4-year-old groups.’’
A selection of market stalls from local small businesses will be set up showcasing metal sculptures, children’s clothing and soft furnishings, jewellery, biscuits, home deco and plenty more.
There will also be fun activities including a jumping castle, uncaged spirit circus school, Jam Events oversized games, sausage sizzle and coffee.
The first 70 children through the gates will receive a goodie bag including merchandise donated by the Elmore/Lockington/Rochester Community Bank, as well as vouchers for lunch and a cupcake activity.
