Yamba goes to night market
BEAUTIFUL weather and 21 stalls offering a smorgasbord of goodies combined to make the Yamba Rotary Club’s night market a glittering success on Saturday.
Event organiser Lyn Watson said people turned out in force for the event, which was the best she had seen since she began to be involved with it four years ago.
She said it was early days in the count of proceeds from the market, but she estimated the chocolate wheel the club ran at the market had raised more than $2300.
“Staf Sheldon (a club member) did the rounds of the caravan parks and the camping grounds during the afternoon and the beautiful night we had certainly helped bring the people out,” said Mrs Watson.
She said other community groups, such as the Lions and Variety clubs, also used the event to raise valuable funds.
“It’s all about putting money back into the community. That’s why I love being involved in this sort of event,” she said.
