Market on the Move

By Liz Abbott and Rudie Verhoef

Coast Road Market is reopening this spring in the grounds of
Warrington School with its first market on Sunday 4 September from
11am – 2pm.
The market began in Seacliff three years ago as a community support
activity in the grounds of Coast Road Retreat. Organisers Liz Abbott
and Rudie Verhoef are excited about the market's new location five
kilometres down the road.
"We really appreciate the generosity of the Warrington School
community in giving us the opportunity to keep this monthly community
event alive out here along the coast at such a fantastic venue," they
say.
The school grounds in Ferguson Street include a large tennis court,
playground and covered verandahs while there is plenty of extra
parking at Warrington Beach, five minutes walk from the school.
The market will continue on the first Sunday of every month from 11am
to 2pm with its unique blend of food, coffee, art, craft, prints,
pakoras, plants, produce, preserves and more.
Free stalls continue to be available and children's stalls are
particularly welcome.
