THE annual Clansthal Summer Market will be held on December 9 at 111 Pig & Whistle Road, Clansthal between 9 am and 2 pm. This is an ideal opportunity to purchase gifts for Christmas and enjoy the delightful garden setting. Delicious meals and refreshments will also be on sale. A percentage of proceeds raised will be donated to the Umsizi Vervet Monkey Release programme.

The quarterly markets are held in the gardens of Keith and Liz Cunningham to raise funds to support conservation initiatives in Clansthal.

“With holiday makers enjoying our lovely surroundings over the summer holidays we would like to ensure that Clansthal is clean and tidy, so everyone can enjoy the beaches,” said Keith, chairperson of the Clansthal Conservancy.

“The conservancy has been active since 2004 and the funds raised allow us to employ people to work with volunteers to remove weeds on verges, maintain the public carpark, clean beaches and eradicate water lettuce in the river estuary,” he said.

Recent achievements by the conservancy include: mountains of rubbish frequently collected from the R102; fishing line bins have been installed on the beach and rocks to encourage fishermen to dispose of their hooks and line safely; water lettuce is constantly being removed from the river estuary.

Market founder and convener, Liz said: “The craft market concept was started in April 2014, with 18 markets held to date. Stall holders are local crafters and those from further afield in KwaZulu-Natal.

“Close to fifty different traders participate, and every effort is made to ensure a wide variety of crafts, clothing, jewellery and refreshments are on offer. Traders supply their own gazebos, tables, chairs etc.,” she said.

As the market is held at a private property with resident dogs, we respectfully require visitors not to bring their animals.
