It's a big weekend for the Lansdowne Community Hall with the hall markets on tomorrow, Saturday, October 29.
Doors will open at 8am. Come along and enjoy looking over the various stalls with lots of bargains from old wares, jewellery, plants, bric-a-brac, new and preloved items, toys, home made cakes and slices, candles, health remedies, craft items and lots more.
There will even be a JP there if anyone has any papers they need to have signed.
Heath Watts will be there to entertain everyone with his great music. Ron will have the barbecue ready to serve those early birds who are looking for breakfast and the ladies will have the kettle on in the kitchen for anyone ready for a cuppa.

Shirley's second Coffee and Connect day, held at the Lansdowne Community Hall last Tuesday, was even more successful than the first, being well attended by many local community members and the wider community.
A demonstration by Clare Walls on flower arrangement and advice on planting of seeds and cuttings by Kimberlea Watts were both enjoyed by everyone. Once again, the food was amazing, with everyone bringing a plate.
The mornings have been an effective way for our community to get out and mix with our neighbours, friends, and family. It is for everyone, men, and women, young and not so young, just to enjoy a relaxed place to catch up in a safe and comfortable place. It is for everyone.
Next week I will write about what Shirley has planned for the next Coffee and Connect morning.
Emily Paterson did an amazing job getting all the challenging work done to get the Upper Lansdowne Pre School Play Group up and running.
Unfortunately, Emily must step away from the play group for personal reasons. Now what is needed are helpers so that the group can keep running.
There is a poll on the group's Facebook page to see what everyone would prefer, either a fortnightly group or a monthly group. It would be appreciated if those interested would please do the poll to see how the group should run. It is also important that people are prepared to help with the running of the group. If there is anyone else that is willing to put their hand up and help, please let the group know.
