Markets showcase best of the country

THE Leyburn markets featured a wide variety of items visitors could pick up for a bargain price on their way to the township's Sprints at the weekend.

As well as antiques, there was bric-a-brac, magazines, dolls and collectables to take home.

Country honey, fresh fruit and vegies were also available.

A new-age stall offered something a little different for gifts, such as detailed wooden decorative boxes and many different types of incense.

Organiser Kathy Beerens said she loved to see the markets in full swing.

"You see little Liberation Park booming with kids laughing and playing," she said.

"People bring their whole extended family to enjoy Leyburn.

"It's such a lovely comfortable environment.

"I just enjoy having a good time and it's great to see the community get together."

All the profits from the site fees will support the local community, through groups such as the Country Women's Association, Warwick Historical Society and the Blue Light Disco.

Kathy said it was a good day, with "everyone getting on so well".

"Even though you don't know everyone it doesn't take long for you to meet people," she said.
