The Lansdowne Community Hall's market day last Saturday (July 30) was a tremendous success with stallholders coming from Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, and from the Manning area.
The hall and the surrounding grounds were packed with colourful stalls with an amazing variety of items.
People enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and took their time looking around the stalls, having morning tea and or a sausage sandwich and catching up with friends and neighbours.
This weekend, August 6 and 7 is the first of the Lansdowne Fishing Club's two outings this month. T
arget species for the outing will be whiting and bream. Weigh in will be from 2pm on Sunday at the Lansdowne Bowling and Recreation Club.
Members are reminded the new size and bag limits for flathead are now in place.
The fishing club has now upgraded its weekly raffles to include a $25 fruit tray and a $25 vegetable tray. At this stage it is just a trial for the month of August to see how it goes.
The club's quarterly bucket draw will be held at the end of August with a 40" TV to be given away. Entry is only by buying Saturday night raffle tickets at the club raffles.
The next Country Music Day will be held this Sunday, August 7 from 11am to 4pm at the Lansdowne Bowling and Recreation Club. Organisers had to move the day forward so as not to clash with another country music event on the same day.
Walk-up artists are most welcome and the bistro is open for lunch. For further information call Jenni on 0431 347 772.
