The Lions Club have a market every month at the Community Centre. This month saw a great collection of stalls and almost every area was represented from plants to jewellery to sculpture to Art and food. The Lions had a sausage sizzle and also cooked egg and bacon sandwiches and a plate of scones or cakes with tea or coffee. There was a lot of interesting shoppers too all making for a friendly experience
The Islanders are a very friendly group of people and part of the markets is the chatting and socializing. This week I took my keyboard and played a medley of Country songs. There was another musician playing a drum and selling feather type fans and smoke clusters. Later a group came with a Guitar and sang across the way. It was quite a musical morning .
There was a good selection of plants for sale…I was wanting a chilli plant and none were available. Then when I was packing the van, the open car next to mine had a huge chilli plant with lots of fat chillies on it. How I wish I had seen it first. The lady from the Community Church stall gave everyone a small bouquet of Chrysanthemum from her own garden, and she also had a huge basket of free mandarins. It was Mothers Day weekend, and fresh flowers were on sale as well as some colourful floral plants
