South Waikato News - - Backyard Banter - LUKE KIRKEBY

With 40 days un­til Christ­mas find­ing those special gifts will be start­ing to play on every­one’s minds.

Luck­ily the Pu­taruru Toy Li­brary is com­ing to the res­cue with its fourth an­nual Christ­mas Night Mar­ket on Fri­day from 5pm un­til 8pm at the Pu­taruru Ho­tel.

The li­brary’s Ju­dith Ben­nett said there will be a big va­ri­ety on of­fer at this year’s mar­ket.

‘‘We have got ap­prox­i­mately 30 stalls and the Pu­taruru Ho­tel has kindly spon­sored the mar­ket and given us space in and out­side the ho­tel for free,’’ she said.

‘‘There will be home­made bak­ing, crafts, her­bal prod­ucts, Tup­per­ware, soaps, pop­corn, hot chips, toys and a range of other things on of­fer.’’

‘‘The Pu­taruru Toy Li­brary will also be do­ing a sausage siz­zle, a bouncy cas­tle for tod­dlers, and we have raf­fles and our new Kid­dikut­ter fundraiser which are knives that are safe for chil­dren to use. There will be some­thing for every­one,’’ she said.

Ben­nett said the mar­ket in the last two years has been ex­tremely pop­u­lar.

‘‘The last two years we have had tor­ren­tial rain but even with the rain we’ve had hun­dreds of peo­ple turn up,’’ she said.

She said it was a great op­por­tu­nity to shop lo­cally for Christ­mas.

‘‘Come along be­cause there will be lots to buy and Christ­mas is nearly here. It’s a chance to get into the Christ­mas at­mos­phere,’’ she said.

She said it wasn’t too late to book a stall spot.
