Vintage and Retro Fayre returns

Kaaren Smylie and Brian Pratt.

This popular event is set to return Greerton Village to a bygone age on Saturday, March 17.

First run in November last year, this event proved popular with visitors and locals alike and is now on the calendar as an annual event.

This year’s event will see the return of vintage, classic and retro-style cars on display on Chadwick Road, and we are keen to hear from anyone who would like to bring their cars along.

You don’t have to be a club member - I know there are heaps of really neat cars out there and we would love to see them in Greerton Village in March.

Just for bringing your car along, you may be in the running to win a prize in the ‘Public Choice’ vote!

We expect a similar number of stall holders in the school grounds selling a wide array of vintage and retro items. This was hugely successful last year and we trust it will be a highlight once again.

As something new for you, visitors and locals shopping in Greerton Village on the day, between 8.30am-1pm, who make a purchase from any participating stores will be in the draw to win a seven-night trip for two to the Gold Coast (conditions apply).

Local band Cleverwood will play our favourite songs from the 1960s and 70s on the Rotunda in the school grounds from 10am-2pm, with a break at midday for the Best Dressed Ladies and Gents competition, featuring prizes for the winners

You may see a number of characters roving Greerton as the Waihi Troupe entertain you, and The Breeze radio station will be on-site in the Village Square in front of the library with giveaways and some old fashioned fun and games.

We’re also pleased to welcome back ‘A Splendid Afternoon’, who will be serving delicious high teas on the veranda at the school.

Currently we still have sites available for stalls, so please contact me for further information on that and any other aspect of the Fayre. Email Sally Benning, at the GVCA, via:
