LECNA will host their first Market Day for 2024 this Saturday, 23 of March.

This market day will coincide with Neighbour Day which will promote community care with the message of ‘Create and Share Belonging.’

Since LENCA is a place of neighbourhood connection, a place to share and create friendship, lifelong support and laughter, this will be a great opportunity for people to get together to share creations and connect neighbours.

LECNA’s market day is organised by local members of the community, their team of volunteers, and the backing from local businesses donating their time and resources which allows all profits to go back into the community.

Visitors will have the opportunity to bag a bargain with variety of items for sale such as books, CDs and DVDs, kid’s toys, brand new T-shirts, household items, Birck a Brack stalls, Kerry’s hand-made cards, and a raffle which will be drawn on the day.

There will also be sweet mustard pickles, chutneys, and pickled onion from Carol’s Preserves along with plants from Carol’s Garden.

“Community events like this not only bring people together to enjoy a morning out in the local community, but it also supports the organisation by raising funds to cover the cost for programs such as Life Skills and Bringing Up Great Kids, currently on offer at LECNA,” said Manager Cassie Paton.

To help feed the hundreds of visitors on the day, Ray White Springwood are providing a generous donation of bacon, eggs, sausages, and English muffins which will be cooked on the BBQ with gas supplied by Rochedale Springwood Lions Club.

“We utilise funds raised from events like Market Day to deliver programs and activities organised by the community for the community.”
