Stirling Times - - Front Page - Laura Pond

KARRINYUP neigh­bours are host­ing their first Garage Sale Trail event this week­end to re­cy­cle un­wanted items and help build com­mu­nity spirit.

RES­I­DENTS of a Karrinyup street are band­ing to­gether to shed un­wanted items.

Neigh­bours on Cleve­don Way are host­ing their first Garage Sale Trail event this Sun­day from 9am to 1pm.

Martina Hoepp­ner said it was an ideal way to re­cy­cle un­wanted items and bring the neigh­bour­hood to­gether.

“It’s an awe­some street; it’s a good mix of peo­ple with lots of kids of dif­fer­ent ages,” she said.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to just get­ting to­gether with our neigh­bours re­ally.”

There will be a va­ri­ety of items for sale, in­clud­ing cloth­ing, chil­dren’s toys, plants, fur­ni­ture and kitchen­ware, and chil­dren will be mak­ing fresh lemon­ade. Money raised will be used to host a Christ­mas street party.

More than 50 garage sales will run lo­cally on Oc­to­ber 20 and 21, in­clud­ing at the Re­cy­cling Cen­tre Bal­catta and all City of Stir­ling li­braries.

Garage Sale Trail co­founder An­drew Valder met Stir­ling Mayor Mark Ir­win re­cently and en­cour­aged res­i­dents to be part of the na­tion­wide event.
