Mulgildie Fun Day to carry on

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MULGILDIE Ho­tel’s Fun Day mar­ket to raise money for the Rex Theatre was a suc­cess on Satur­day, rais­ing roughly $750.

With mar­kets run­ning from 7am to 5pm, there was plenty of time for peo­ple to drop by the ho­tel to check out the goods on dis­play.

Sev­eral ven­dors trav­elled to set up shop at the mar­kets, such as Derek Jones who bought honey from Gin Gin, or artist Arthur Ham­blin who came all the way up from the Gold Coast.

Mulgildie Ho­tel pub­li­can Julie South said they were look­ing at do­ing an­other mar­ket in three to four months.

“Ev­ery­one was re­ally re­ally pleased and I looked out a lot of times to see cars lined up on the street,” Mrs South said.

“Nearly all of the ven­dors re­ported good sales, and a lot of them have said they’re ea­ger to come back next time.”

Ac­cord­ing to Julie, crowds peaked at mid­day be­fore drop­ping off around 3pm, likely com­ing off lunch break.

There are plans for the next char­ity mar­ket to run in early Septem­ber, with pro­ceeds go­ing to­ward Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land.
