Craft Bazaar changing hands
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.”
