“A GREAT day for the community!”

This is how Tilligerry Art Gallery’s (TAG) Sue McDonnell described their market day held on Sunday 1 May.

Tilligerry was somewhat starved of community interaction during Covid-19 restrictions and as the sun burst through a grey sky, people flocked to the venue.

Some 34 stallholders took up station on the grassy slopes of McCann Park and the local ‘Lemon Eucalypts’ ukulele band entertained the crowd.

The Lions Club sausage sizzle worked overtime as did the local mobile coffee van.

Marine Rescue was also in attendance, fundraising and answering any queries local boat owners had.

Sue said that the Gallery stall saw sales soar on the day.

“With Mother’s Day next week, locals and tourists snapped up items of original jewellery, pottery and art as presents for the special day.

“We were literally run off our feet,” she said.

The Tilligerry Art Gallery has gone from strength to strength over recent years after relocating to the old fire station on the main road into town with limitless parking and easy access.

Indeed, Lemon Tree Passage itself has become very popular with day trippers from the Hunter and tourists seeking to find quiet restful places away from the stress and hassles of city life.

The next big community day will be the local car club’s ‘Motorama’ held at the RSL’s grounds in Tanilba Bay on 15 May.
