COM­MU­NITY GROUP HAS HOPES FOR GARAGE SALE TRAIL

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

SOUTH Perth Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­nity group Mo­orditj Keila is hop­ing to use this year’s Garage Sale Trail to gain recog­ni­tion.

The group or­gan­ises health, cul­tural and artis­tic events and ac­tiv­i­ties for the per­sonal and com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment of lo­cal Abo­rig­i­nal peo­ple.

When the City of South Perth holds its sec­ond Garage Sale Trail on Oc­to­ber 22, a num­ber of com­mu­nity mem­bers and groups will hold garage sales.

Mo­orditj Keila chair­woman Dena Gower said the group would hold its garage sale at the Lifestreams Chris­tian Church in Como, where it has an op-shop.

“We have the de­mount­able at the back and we want peo­ple to know where we are and what we do,” she said.

“At the op-shop, we sell cloth­ing, linen, cut­lery and lots of other things.

“We’ll have cups of tea and cake on the day; we want to make it friendly for peo­ple.”

City of South Perth Mayor Sue Do­herty said the coun­cil was proud to be mak­ing the Garage Sale Trail hap­pen lo­cally to pro­vide res­i­dents with a fun way to de-clut­ter, meet peo­ple and find some bar­gains.

“Garage Sale Trail is a sim­ple idea that en­cour­ages peo­ple to con­sider how things can be reused while also pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity to raise money,” she said. “The idea of pass­ing on what you don’t want to a new home is truly a great form of sus­tain­abil­ity.”
