Great Southern Herald - - News - Sjanna San­dalova

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.
