There were stalls galore, showcasing a variety of new and used items and speciality stalls.

The garage sale component of the market day supported the ‘2017 Garage sale trails reuse revolution’, an initiative designed to reduce landfill.

The Girl Guides prepared food and drinks for sale, with their delicious Devonshire scones the talk of the day.

The girls also worked hard manning the raffle prize table, selling tickets to win one of ten fantastic prizes donated by local businesses.

All tickets sales from their wonderful raffle are going towards the Medowie Guides participation in 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 Girl Guides told News Of The Area, “I would to thank Rachael Baas, our assistant district manager at Medowie, for organising and running another successful fundraiser for our Jamboree Participants- which was not possible without the help of our Jamboree parents, Guides and Leaders.”

“Also, a big thank you to our community members who dropped by and browsed the stalls and enjoyed our freshly home baked scones for morning tea.”

“It is a great learning experience for our Guides, as they are involved with the set up, clean up and participating on the day with sales, food preparation and service,” she said.
