Busker sought

Central and North Burnett Times - - COMMUNITY | NOTICEBOARD - – Noel Thomp­son

THE Unit­ing Church mar­ket com­mit­tee would love to see a busker on board to get the mar­kets rockin’.

Af­ter 10 years of the Mun­dub­bera monthly mar­kets, the ap­peal has gone out for some live en­ter­tain­ment.

Mar­ket co-or­di­na­tor Jan New­man said the suc­cess of the mar­kets was due to the won­der­ful com­mu­nity and the ded­i­ca­tion of the stall hold­ers.

“We raise money for the church and over the years we have helped all types of char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tions,” she said.

“CareF­light, Fred Hol­lows, Chap­pies, Ro­tary Lodge and all the

dif­fer­ent groups that have come and had a stall at the mar­ket over the years.

“And now to brighten up the at­mos­phere we would like some live mu­sic.”

Stall hold­er­sWally and Liz Philippi said they drove up from Gun­dia, just south of Mary­bor­ough, ev­ery month.

“We al­ways do well here in Mun­dub­bera and to­day has been es­pe­cially good,” Mr Philippi said.

“We sell all types of gifts and knick-knacks, along with an es­sen­tial oil pain-re­liev­ing cream.”

Mrs Philippi said the cream was their best seller.

Sal­lyWells from the Unit­ing Church said the mar­ket also sup­ported the min­is­ter in the church, the up­keep of the grounds and the church build­ing it­self.

“I think ev­ery­one ap­pre­ci­ates that the mar­kets are op­er­at­ing and that they can come down and find a bar­gain or just hang out with a friend,” she said.
