Blueskin Bay radio news for Friday March 19

The big local event this weekend is the annual Blueskin Bay Country Fair & Clearing Sale. This will be held at Bland Park tomorrow, Saturday. Many local organisations, including Warrington School, will have fundraising stalls with local groups also selling their wares. Food is a popular feature of the Clearing Sale, and this year will be no exception. There will also be plenty of free entertainment for children. The Clearing Sales runs from 9.30am to 4pm.

Tonight the Waitati Edible Gardeners or WEGies meet at the Old Stores, to make a final decision on possible uses for a recent Lotteries Commission grant. The meeting begins at 7.30pm.

On Sunday the area will be a hive of activity with three separate events. The annual Seacliff Garage Sale runs from 10am to 2pm at the Domain in Kilgour Street, no matter what the weather. With food, music, entertainment and bargains, the sale is billed as having something for everyone.

The second of the season’s three harvest markets will be held from 10.30am, also on Sunday. Locally produced food items of all kinds will be on sale, from produce to preserves. Anyone with something to sell is welcome – stalls are free. The Harvest Market is held at the Old Stores in Harvey Street.

And for those who prefer to spend their Sunday working, there is a community weeding day at the Warrington Domain. The start time is 10am.

This coming week is Playcentre Awareness Week and a number of different activities are planned locally. One of these is an open day at the Blueskin Playcentre on Wednesday from 10-11.30 am.

And finally, the library Book Car returns to Warrington School on Wednesday with a full stock of great reads. It will be open from 2-3pm and is followed at 3.15 by the book club, to which everyone is welcome.
