Garage sale ahead of move

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Starfish So­cial Ser­vices are hold­ing a garage sale in prepa­ra­tion for a big move.

So­cial worker Jor­dyn Craw­ford said the or­gan­i­sa­tion, which used to be based above the post of­fice, put a lot of equip­ment and gear into stor­age when they moved to Firth St. It was only sup­posed to be tem­po­rary. She said the cur­rent build­ing be­ing used isn’t as pro­fes­sional as Jo McNaughton would like it to be. Craw­ford said the build­ing was cold and damp.

The com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion is hop­ing to clear out all sorts of gear they’ve held in stor­age for months while also fundrais­ing for brand new equip­ment.

‘‘ Starfish So­cial Ser­vices is look­ing at re­lo­cat­ing in or­der to con­tinue our ser­vices. Our garage sale will in­clude ev­ery­thing we need to part with be­fore we make a move.

‘‘We will be look­ing at rais­ing money to move for­ward and also en­sur­ing our items go to a good home,’’ Craw­ford said.

Avail­able at the garage sale, be­ing held this Satur­day, will be a wide va­ri­ety of gear in­clud­ing ball gowns, tools, fur­nish­ings, bagged wood and much more.

Starfish will be keep­ing items like their pool ta­ble, ping pong ta­ble and foos­ball.
