THIS weekend will see the start of a new market season for the Tocumwal Foreshore Markets.
Now in its 35th year there are more than 150 stalls this Saturday, and something for everyone.
The Tocumwal Foreshore Markets are known far and wide as a social gathering for residents and visitors alike.
Market Manager Bob Bowman advises that all your favourite stall holders will be in attendance, together with some new additions that will be of interest to everyone.
This season the market committee have been working on extending their ‘food court’, so you can nibble as you walk or relax and have a great lunch after you have finished browsing the stalls.
The markets continue to showcase the wide selection of locally grown produce, as well as plants, bric-abrac, clothing, collectables and all those creative and crafty ideas that everyone enjoys.
So as the weather warms - don’t forget, ‘‘There’s bargains galore on the Toc Foreshore!’’
●●● Welcome to Deniliquin St, Kristine Philpot and her creation of Miss Daisy.
The love of designing and sewing children’s clothes and beautiful fashion accessories for teenagers to adults blends together in Kristine’s new venture.
This shop, a treasure trove of mainly Australian products, adds to the variety of shops in the town.
After selling the children’s range of clothes at local markets for the past few years, Kristine saw the opportunity to expand.
Kristine is open three days a week, so call in and say hello.
●●● Tully and Adrienne Jones welcome their sister Imogen who was born at Goulburn Valley Base Hospital on Father’s Day.
Imogen is the third daughter for Melissa and Andrew Jones, and sixth granddaughter for Anne and Colin Jones.
Congratulations to Tocumwal Primary School students, Seth Wilmot, Lucy Bourchier and Mitchell Vanderhoek who represented the school at the Regional Finals of the Premiers Spelling Bee in Albury.
Although they didn’t win the trio did well to get to that level.
●●● Mathletics of the Week went to Holly Noonan with 4110 and Tom Hatty with 12002 points.
●●● The hockey accolades continue for Amy Hollister, student at Sacred Heart School.
Amy plays for Corowa/Rutherglen United Hockey Club during the season, which has just concluded.
