George Herald - - Arts & Entertainment -

Li­fe Com­mu­ni­ty Ser­vi­ces em­bar­ked on con­necting com­mu­ni­ties by hol­ding a spring mar­ket on Sa­tur­day 27 Oc­to­ber at their Park­de­ne pro­per­ty.

A fes­ti­ve mor­ning em­bra­ced folk from dif­fe­rent bu­si­nes­ses, chur­ches, non-go­vern­men­tal or­ga­ni­sa­ti­ons and neig­hbour­hoods who con­nected and had fel­lows­hip to­get­her for the mor­ning.

A beau­ti­ful cof­fee shop was set up in the tent, pro­vi­ding as­sor­ted re­freshments and de­li­ci­ous dis­hes and ca­kes.

One of the high­lig­hts was the in­for­mal per­for­man­ces by lo­cal ta­lent on the pop-up sta­ge, to the de­lig­ht of the cro­wd.

S­talls in­clu­ded fresh ve­ge­ta­bles from the Li­fe food gar­dens, han­d­craf­ted pro­ducts from I­sipho and pal­let fur­ni­tu­re, all of which are ma­de by the staff of Li­fe Com­mu­ni­ty Ser­vi­ces.

Pan­ca­kes we­re ba­ked by the staff of Li­fe Chris­ti­an A­ca­de­my and hand­ma­de pa­per and kids' gif­ts we­re cre­a­ted by the staff of Li­fe Hap­py Feet Le­ar­ning Cen­t­re.
