Twilight looks bright
THE first Heathcote Twilight Market was a hit.
Testing the waters to see how the night time slot would work, the Heathcote Lions Club was thrilled with the community support.
‘‘It went very well and we were really happy with the turn out for the first one,’’ Jean Saunders said.
‘‘The crowd were more than happy to come out and support it which was lovely.
‘‘We have another two booked in to see how it goes and then we might extend it depending on the response.’’
There were a variety of market and food stalls, a BBQ thanks to the Heathcote Night CWA and music by the Combined Churches of Heathcote and local band The Smashed Crabs.
A Minions themed jumping castle and balloons handed out by the Combined Churches of Heathcote kept the children happy with a number of local wineries offering wine tastings, one with homemade beer, which proved very popular for the adults.
Also present for the first time was Mr Sharp, the knife sharpening man, who did a roaring trade.
‘‘We are hoping to get a few more food stalls and a few more things for the kids at the next market,’’ Ms Saunders said.
‘‘If anyone needs more information or would like a site they can contact me on 0400 675 995.’’
The next twilight market is due to be held on March 10.
