Pre­par­ing for an­nual Pretty Pine Mar­ket

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - NEWS -

The Pretty Pine Fa­ther’s Day Mar­ket com­mit­tee is in the process of fi­nal­is­ing de­tails for this year’s event, and as al­ways they’re seek­ing stall­hold­ers for the day.

Com­mit­tee mem­bers are call­ing for busi­nesses, mak­ers, cre­ators and pro­duc­ers that of­fer any kind of item found at a mar­ket. This could in­clude pre­serves, jew­ellery, cloth­ing and other ‘knick-knacks’.

‘‘This event is sig­nif­i­cant for our small com­mu­nity and not only do stall­hold­ers add to the at­mos­phere on the day and pro­vide fur­ther ac­tiv­i­ties for at­ten­dees, they also con­trib­ute to our fundrais­ing ef­forts,’’ Mar­ket or­gan­iser Emma Crameri.

‘‘The event isn’t too far away, so if any­one is in­ter­ested please con­tact the com­mit­tee.’’

The mar­ket is the ma­jor fundraiser for the Pretty Pine Re­cre­ation Re­serve and in the past the com­mit­tee has also do­nated some of the pro­ceeds to char­ity.

Ev­ery year the pop­u­lar mar­ket at­tracts about 3000 peo­ple, who travel from far and wide around the re­gion.

For any­one in­ter­ested in hav­ing a stall at the mar­ket, phone com­mit­tee mem­ber Ben Chartres on 0437 789 279.
