DESPITE icy cold and rainy weather, a long weekend and mid-term break for private schools, the farmers’ market at the Beehive was hailed to be a great success by organisers and stall owners.
The Greytown Child and Youth Care Centre would like to thank Gary Redinger for his generosity in making his premises and facilities available to them.

A variety of items were on sale, and many stall owners sold out their products. Juanita Mason's bunches of proteas were all sold out within an hour and Chris Tredoux's feta cheese did not last much longer. The cold weather certainly played a role in pancake sales, as they were ordered in large quantities.

Long before midday, the Boeing was “declared over” and some OBS helped to warm the cold bodies. Festive music and good conversations also contributed to making this a memorable day.

Thanks to every community member who braved the weather conditions to come and support this day.

The next farmers' market is planned for 4 June, contact Sue on 072 827 2483) or Pieter on 033 413 2133) for more information. Hlengekile Xulu walked away with the rooster which had created much interest in a raffle. - Ayanda Mabaso.
