Low in­ter­est for Tw­light Fare

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

A low num­ber of con­firmed stall hold­ers for the Mata­mata Twi­light Fair is caus­ing con­cern and dis­ap­point­ment for the event or­gan­iser.

Or­gan­iser Laura Man­ning says 18 stall hold­ers have so far been con­firmed for the Novem­ber event, less than half the amount booked this time last year.

‘‘We had 30 peo­ple booked this time last year, if not more.’’

Man­ning says among those con­firmed are food stalls, Nutrimet­ics, Tup­per­ware, 3G Bikes NZ and Aus­tralia and Ar­bonne.

Man­ning says the event will still go ahead re­gard­less. She would like at least 60 stall hold­ers.

Last year peo­ple were still book­ing sites up un­til the day be­fore the event, so with plenty of time re­main­ing un­til Novem­ber, Man­ning is op­ti­mistic more peo­ple will come on board.

Right now Man­ning is seek­ing any­one want­ing to run a sausage siz­zle as a fundraiser and there can be more than one group fundrais­ing.

She is also want­ing to book in a live band or mu­si­cian, how­ever they will need to sup­ply their own sound equip­ment.

The Twi­light Fare is on Sun­day, Novem­ber 27, 1pm-6pm. Any­one in­ter­ested in book­ing a stall can con­tact Man­ning on 027 206 5173.
