Medowie Girl Guides are hosting their Market Day this Sunday, with a variety of new and used items and other speciality stalls.

The market will take place on Sunday 22 October, from 9am until 2pm at the Williamtown Hall.

The garage sale component will support the ‘2017 Garage sale trails reuse revolution’, an initiative designed to reduce landfill.

There will be food and drinks available, with some delicious Devonshire scones making the food list.

The girl guides will also be selling tickets to their major raffle, with ten fantastic prizes donated by local businesses.

The generous prizes include weekends away in Nelson Bay and the Hunter Valley, vehicle servicing, quad biking, sand boarding adventures, a family dolphin cruise, photography prints and homewares.

Tickets are $10, and every cent raised will go to the participants attending the 2018 Sydney Jamboree.

The Jamboree is an International week long camp for Guides from all over the World, where the girls will challenge themselves daily, while making new friends and learning life skills.

Elizabeth Keeley from Medowie Guides told News Of The Area, “The girls have worked so hard to ensure this market is a success, and have been working hard selling tickets at the markets and raising funds for the Jamboree.”

“They are so hardworking and passionate about their Guides, and deserve to enjoy their time at Jamboree.”

The day looks set to have something for everyone in the family, so come along for a fun outing, and give the Medowie Girl Guides a helping hand.
