Twi­light looks bright

McIvor Times - - NEWS - By VIVIENNE DUCK

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.
