HAILED as a beautiful day which began from morning until afternoon, Salone owner Tracy Hichens thanked all involved in making the end of the month market hosted by Salone and the village walk grocers a success last Saturday.

Held on Townbush Road in Montrose, the market boasted more than just a selling-items event, but a gathering whereby members of the community could socialise and share their day to day goings on as they shopped.

Also in the mix was a blanket and clothing donations drop off where visitors could donate any unwanted or unused items from their households to the less fortunate.

“The friendliness of the stall tenders brought a special vibe we love to grow within our team. Thank you to all who supported the homeless by bringing your blankets and clothing for the orphanage, please remember that we will continue to keep our doors open and you are welcome anytime to support our community,” said Hichens.

Some of the highlights from the market was that of the Soap Box stand started by two children with a keen eye for entrepreneurship who make soap from all natural ingredients and sell at local markets.

“Unique handcrafted and home-made delicacies on sale tantalised every person who passed by. We look forward to the next market,” said Jo, the mother of these two children.

“Our family in Montrose are here to stay and build our community with love and energy,” said beautician Shannon Bennet who is renowned for her manicures who was also part of the market.
