Bush Telegraph - - Focus On Farming - By DAVE MUR­DOCH

Co­in­cid­ing with Nor­way Day cel­e­bra­tions in Norse­wood on Sun­day May 20, New Zealand Nat­u­ral Cloth­ing with its Norsewear Brand spon­sored a mar­ket to help raise funds for its Wop Wops Wet­land De­vel­op­ment.

Owner of New Zealand Nat­u­ral Cloth­ing Phil Grant said there was a good flow of vis­i­tors through the shop dur­ing the day and both the shop and gallery had great trade.

The stall hold­ers were gen­er­ally happy, say­ing cus­tomers ebbed and flowed ac­cord­ing to the events in the Nor­we­gian cel­e­bra­tions.

There was a va­ri­ety of stalls from the Tiny Dutch Shop’s cheeses to St John Angli­can Church jams and chut­neys, folk art and paint­ing from IK Art which sells its prod­ucts also in the NZ Nat­u­ral Cloth­ing Gallery, jew­ellery and second hand books, plants and crafts, New Gen­er­a­tion liquorice, nougat and fudge plus Kin­tail honey.

Phil Grant said the Wop Wops Wet­land stood to ben­e­fit from stall hold­ers by about $500 with do­na­tions yet to be counted.

At the Wop Wops Mar­ket St John Angli­can Church mem­bers had a sale of pre­serves.
