Gawler Village Fair
GAWLER was buzzing on the
weekend with the Village Fair and
Jazz Festival both taking place, the
windy and cooler weather kept the
numbers down at the fair but it
was still a great day out.
It was a different story on Sunday,
with the cafés and hotels blessed
with sunshine and everyone enjoyed
a band or two, whether it was at
Conversations Café for breakfast or
the Kingsford and P/A hotels for
The Gawler Village Fair was a great
way to raise awareness of the many
community groups in Gawler. Some
of the groups on display included the
Gawler Stitchers, a group of sewers
who meet at Kornacraft on the second
Monday of every month from 7pm to
9pm, and the Gawler Care and Share
group, which meets at the Elderly
Centre every Tuesday and Wednesday,
between 9.30am to 2.30pm.
Another talented group are the guys
from Willo’s Men’s Shed, based in
Little Paxton Street, Willaston.
The men’s shed is an initiative of
the Gawler Health Service and enables
men to share ideas, give support, have
access to health information and make
things in their spare time.

packed house on Saturday for
a quiz night which raised over

organising raffles, cooking the meals
for the night and, most of all, being

Emma spoke, saying that she and
Sam were overwhelmed by everyone’s
support and expressed hope they can
get through what lies ahead.

the night and donated their payment

Mayoral candidate John Bolton was
on my table, along with Mignon from

to say we came third.
