Beachmere Community Markets are no more.

Tragically, the Beachmere Community Markets/ markets in the park will no longer be a  local event.

I for one will sorely miss them as I was running a regular market cart vegetable stall of home grown produce. Each market day was a fun and very sociable outing which I always looked forward to.

I am a market enthusiast.

But they would not have been occurring at all without Robyn Slack's tireless work organising each occasion.To  Club Beachmere's credit  the market project was a creative initiative that enabled a regular community convergence, open to all -- either as stall holder or attendee.

'Tis a pity that the patronage wasn't keener or more loyal...but the project notched up 5 years afterall.

With regret we advise you of the closure of the Beachmere Community Markets, effective immediately.
We would like to take this time to sincerely thank our market coordinator Robyn Slack for her tireless efforts to bring this market to fruition during the past 5 years.
Unfortunately support for the markets from both stall holders and community visitors has been declining, and as such we can no longer sustain the regular markets.
Thank you.
Club Beachmere Committee, Management and Staff.
