Bad weather was no deterrent for the hundreds of people who made their way to the Brunswick Market and Expo day last weekend.

“We’ve had some good feedback from people that came along as well as the store holders,” Brunswick Community Resource Centre coordinator Jo Dalton said.

“The day went really well considering the weather, stallholders encouraged the engagement of visitors which was a big focus.”

Sea Shanty singing group Anchormen enchanted guests with their musical talent while Brunswick Men’s Shed members fired up the barbecue.

Between the sausage sizzle fundraiser and the wood raffle which Peter Monagle managed to win, a total of $740 was raised.

Brunswick St John Ambulance also provided hands on CPR and defibrillator demonstrations throughout the day while Bunbury Wildlife Rescue brought along owls, snakes, possums and joeys for people to pat.

Following the community market day, Brunswick CRC will be hosting a business sundowner in conjunction with Harvey CRC on July 17 at the Harvey Visitor Centre.
