●●● Fin­ley Pony Club is seek­ing your sup­port.

The Fin­ley Pony Club is de­lighted to have been in­vited to be a con­tender in the 2012 De­cem­ber Fin­ley Farm­ers’ Mar­ket ‘Gate For Growth’ ini­tia­tive.

The fol­low­ing is a mes­sage from the club:

‘‘The Fin­ley Pony Club’s first rally was held on De­cem­ber 20, 1964 and has con­tin­ued ever since to pro­vide qual­ity in­struc­tion in all as­pects of horse own­er­ship and horse­man­ship.

‘‘It is a friendly and wel­com­ing club which cur­rently has six­teen rid­ing mem­bers rang­ing in age from 4 to 16 years.

‘‘The club is, how­ever, al­ways on the look­out for new mem­bers and [we] have set our­selves a goal to grow to over twenty rid­ing mem­bers in 2013.

‘‘Our Novem­ber rally was a spe­cial one as all turned up dressed in pink - even the horses - and we do­nated all our lunch money plus a gold coin do­na­tion to sup­port the Can­cer Coun­cil of Aus­tralia.

‘‘We were able to proudly present a grand to­tal of $187.10 to the Can­cer Coun­cil and hope to do more spe­cial days such as this one in the fu­ture.

‘‘As we round off an­other suc­cess­ful and busy year, our next rally is our Christ­mas rally.

‘‘We are plan­ning a camp over at the show-grounds with ev­ery­one set­ting up camp this Satur­day, De­cem­ber 1 and we are go­ing for a trail ride around the cross coun­try course.

‘‘We are hope­ful Santa will ar­rive later in the af­ter­noon, per­haps on horse­back, which will be a spe­cial treat for all the chil­dren young and old.

‘‘On Sun­day, we are go­ing to have our nor­mal rally day and DC Kerry Lunn has planned a morn­ing jam-packed with flat rid­ing in­struc- tion plus nov­elty games on horse­back.

‘‘The Fin­ley Farm­ers’ Mar­ket is also on this Satur­day start­ing nice and early at 8.00am be­fore the heat of the day and fin­ish­ing around noon at the Fin­ley Lake.

‘‘Come along and pick up a bargain or two of lo­cally made and grown prod­ucts and pro­duce.

‘‘Whilst you are there, the Fin­ley Pony Club would greatly ap­pre­ci­ate your sup­port and vote in the ‘Gate For Growth’ com­pe­ti­tion.

‘‘All funds we may re­ceive from this ini­tia­tive will go di­rectly into pur­chas­ing equip­ment to ben­e­fit the young rid­ers our club in­structs.

‘‘If you would like more in­for­ma­tion on our won­der­ful club, please con­tact Mrs Sophia In­gram (pres­i­dent) on 5874 2002 or Mrs Kerry Lunn (DC) on 5883 0212.’’

●●● Just a re­minder that Fin­ley’s St Joseph’s Catholic School is the re­cip­i­ent of the tak­ings from raf­fles con­ducted at the Bowl­ing Club this Fri­day evening.

School prin­ci­pal Toody Bray­bon urges all par­ents and friends to go along and sup­port this won­der­ful con­cept of the Bowl­ing Club to as­sist lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions fi­nan­cially.

Fam­i­lies are most wel­come and meals will be avail­able.

●●● What’s new at this Satur­day’s Fin­ley Farm­ers’ Mar­ket?

Santa will make his an­nual ap­pear­ance at this mar­ket so, if you want to see him ar­rive in his spe­cial ‘‘Fin­ley’’ ve­hi­cle, make sure you are at the mar­ket by 9.30am.

For those of you who love cher­ries, it is fi­nally that time of year when you can in­dulge in the de­light of eat­ing cher­ries, wear­ing cherry ear­rings and (for the boys) see­ing how far you can spit out those seeds.

There will def­i­nitely be one cherry stall and pos­si­bly two.

It is also ca­per sea­son, so the mar­ket will have some great ca­per prod­ucts. We may be lucky and have some sugar snaps as well.

Lo­cal farmer Jack says ‘‘It's touch and go. Need some more sunny weather.’’

Since this mar­ket is also the An­nual Christ­mas Mar­ket you can pick up some great presents. We are also lucky to have Anita, from Neme­sis Glass back again to demon­strate the old-world art of lam­p­work­ing. And, fi­nally, if you want to cre­ate you own per­son­alised Christ­mas cards, let Ju­lia from POP {pho­tog­ra­phy} take a spe­cial photo of you and your fam­ily.

What a great mar­ket it will be, so don't miss it!
