Craft Bazaar chang­ing hands

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE sad day has ar­rived for the or­gan­iser of Craft Bazaar as it changes hands af­ter 33 years of op­er­a­tion in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Tr­ish Hoff­man said the craft ex­hi­bi­tion, which was run by the Lutheran Church, Childers, was a ma­jor fundraiser for the church but was not able to con­tinue be­cause of lack of sup­port.

“We tried for years to get more mem­bers, we tried week­ends and we tried ev­ery­thing,” she said.

“The stan­dard and qual­ity which went into craft was just amaz­ing.

“It was held dur­ing the Crush Fes­ti­val and was all un­der one roof too.”

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Roslyn Rieck said they would like to thank busi­nesses who gave school chap­laincy com­mit­tee in Childers, and al­though it would not be able to take place this year, she hoped the best for it in the years to come.

Mrs Hoff­man said she would also take a step back af­ter the years of hard work which was put in, but would still be avail­able as a sup­port role.

“I re­ally en­joyed it,” Mrs Hoff­man said.

“By the end of the day you are re­ally ex­hausted but you get to meet some lovely peo­ple along the way.”
