The organisers of the recent Easter Market held at the Tuross Head Country Club on Easter Sunday are thrilled with the success of the day.
They extend thanks to the many members of the community who helped make this event, not only successful as a fundraiser but as a beautiful local community event.
The bottom green of the Country Club looked magnificent with the many beautiful stalls arranged there. People were able to purchase a wide variety of home -made craft, food and plant products. Some grabbed treasures from a variety of bric- a- brac stalls as well as some exclusive wood products from our local Men’s Shed and even honey and associated bee products from a local Tuross Bee Keeper. Our Tuross photographer Maree Jackson had a lovely display of photographs for sale. Our women golfers had a stall selling donated goods and the profits from it will be used to enhance the gardens at our golf course. The women from our local Moruya Hospital Auxiliary had many beautiful home - made goods for sale, all profits going to their projects for our local hospital. The Tuross Head Caring Group were very pleased with their stall and were able to familiarise their work with many people who were unaware of the great work this organisation does in looking after our community.
There were 26 stallholders in addition to the stalls which the bowlers ran inside.
We even had a local author Betzy launch her book “Whoops- a -Daisy the World’s Gone Crazy”. What an amazing community we have in our little town!
A highlight of the fair was the live music provide by “Joe Q” from Wallagoot. His entertaining music was a perfect accompaniment for “our fair on the green.”
Having a break from shopping, people were able to enjoy a lovely Devonshire morning tea keeping the ladies in the kitchen very, very busy for several hours. In addition some wonderful “friends of the club” volunteers manned a very busy barbecue with top sausages and hamburgers.
The crazy Easter rabbit arrived to enchant the children with her magic flopping ears, giving out some chocolate eggs to well deserving little ones. A Guessing competition kept people entertained as they counted the number of chocolates in a jar.
The Easter raffle makes a huge contribution to the financial success of this event and we thank everyone who supported this by buying tickets. Members of the bowling club gave many hours to the selling of the tickets at the club prior to the market as well as in front of the IGA. Thankyou everyone for supporting the raffle and enabling us to sell the tickets. Winners have been announced on social media and on the club’s website.
We look forward to the next Easter Fair, grown so much over the years that we can no longer call it “a mini- market”.
Thankyou everyone for your contribution as an organiser, volunteer, a stallholder or a shopper. It was a great day in Tuross Head and the weather could not have been better.
