Market Day 6 February 2021

Our February 2021 market featured the usual range of stalls, music, outlets, and activities and was attended by a bumper crowd. COVID-19 arrangement were in place with controlled entranceways, sign in, sanitiser and plenty of signage.

This month we had a major feature - Koala Action Day - and were also supprted by a large mixed troupe of Zumba dancers who performed two sets between our musician LITTLE KNG.

Koala Action Day

Welcome to CountryKoala Action Day was the theme for the day and was kicked off by Uncle Micklo who performed a Welcome to Country and chatted with Councillor Susan Jenvey

There was an information stand at the Market, as well as a register for people with appropriate properties to register their interest in receiving free koala habitat and feed trees later in 2021. There will be community planting days arranged through Council and LandCare when the trees are available.

Three koala food trees trees were planted by Mayor Rhonda Hoban Logan with help by Nambucca Valley Landcare.

Zumba Gold

A large group of women - and men - from Kerri Mergan's Zumba Gold classes wowed the audience with a stunning display. Zumba Gold is a low impact Latin-inspired dance fitness party! It relieves stress, builds core strength and helps increase balance and co-ordination while experiencing different music and rhythms from all over the world. It’s also great exercise for your brain! Zumba classes are a lot of fun, very informal and open to all ages, genders and fitness levels.
