Shop­pers snap up bar­gains

Katikati Advertiser - - Your Community Voice -

The St Peter’s Angli­can Church held a suc­cess­ful mon­ster garage sale at the church premises at Beach Rd on Satur­day rais­ing over $4000.

There were plenty of in­ter­ested bar­gain hunters with peo­ple queued out­side so the doors opened slightly ear­lier than the 9am open­ing time. The church hall was filled with goods from couches and gar­den­ing equip­ment to books, cloth­ing and even an ex­er­cy­cle — from house­lots of do­nated items.

Rev­erend Bren­dan Gibbs said the garage sale was so good all round. Over the years funds raised from the church’s an­nual fair and with help from the com­mu­nity have as­sisted with main­te­nance on the his­toric church. Built in 1884 the his­toric church has been up­graded with the help of fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties such as the garage sale. With the church premises be­ing used by many church and com­mu­nity groups dur­ing the year, he said there is al­ways sub­stan­tial main­te­nance need­ing to be done, both in­side and out.
