The Laurieton Public School community has been hard at work for the last year to ensure the 2018 October street market is another success.

The event is at Bold Street, Laurieton on Monday, October 1 from 8am until 1pm. 

The market is the school’s major fundraiser and organised by committee members from the school’s P&C. 

P&C president Amy Moore thanked market coordinator Amber Barker for all her hard work over the past year. 

“She has been working non-stop to organise stall holders and secure insurance. 

Amy said the event is also driven by helpers from the school who donate their time willingly to help. 

“There are dads who are out nice and early on the day to help direct traffic for us,” she said. 

Amy said the 2018 Easter event was the school’s biggest market yet, with over 75 stall holders. 

“It’s great that the stall holders keep coming back year after year,” she said. 

People can enjoy browsing stalls with plants, art, craft, handicrafts, tasting food and produce. There will be live music and performances from buskers.

There is also a children’s corner with a bouncy castle, other rides and face painting. 

In the past the event has helped fund school reading material, robotics programs, computers and excursions. 

The fundraising event has been running for over 40 years and is held annually for Easter and in October.
