Event to mark 25th year
This year’s Nyabing Country Women’s Association Market Day is expected to be bigger and better than ever.
Nyabing CWA vice-president Alyson Cooper said she was proud of how far the annual market day has come as it celebrates its 25th year on Saturday, October 14.
“We are proud to say that we started as a community event to assist stay-at-home mums with a little income in the early days selling their crafts and preserves,” she said.
“We are continuing this tradition today, but including all the small businesses and community groups.
“We are so pleased that the Pingrup CRC are joining us this year with their on-thehour Storytime and face painting for kids, Nyabing Community Church’s cake stall, and the regular fashion parade at 11am.”
Nyabing CWA Market Day co-ordinator Kylie Freeman said it was a day the whole family could enjoy.
“We are showcasing homemade wares and crafts and promoting small businesses within and around our communities,” she said.
Mrs Cooper said in the past five years market day had undergone many changes to improve and attract more people.
“Usually we have on average 300 people through our doors, but we are hoping with the change of dates, and Bloom Festival inclusion, we’ll see many more people through our doors, saying hello to old and new friends, exploring our great district and all that we have on offer.”
St John Ambulance will also be there during the day, teaching children the importance of emergency services.
