Market stallholders sought

The Nullagine town centre was brought to life earlier this month, when the Pilbara’s second oldest gold rush town hosted the inaugural Nullagine Markets.

The first markets, on June 12, sponsored by the Shire of East Pilbara and Nullagine Community Resource Centre, had no shortage of souvenirs and recycled goods including tools, books, camping equipment and seedlings.

Nullagine CRC manager Cate Clancy hailed the event a huge success, adding she hoped the markets would become a regular event on the town’s social calendar.

“Nullagine is only a small town and the community don’t get much of a chance to get together, so I wanted to create a social event where people could meet up and sell their goods,” she said.

“We have had lots of good feedback from the townsfolk ... it is nice to see some action in the town again.

“The CRC are hoping to hold markets on the second Sunday of each month for the rest of the year.”

Ms Clancy encouraged stallholders and visitors from across the Pilbara to participate in the town’s next markets on July 10.

“For the first markets, we had seven stalls, including two stallholders who travelled from Marble Bar,” she said.

“We are hoping maybe once word gets around, we can attract people from other towns.

“We hold the markets outside in the town centre, however there’s plenty of room to expand into Gallop Hall if we get enough interest.”

Stallholders are charged a $5 entry fee, with all funds raised go to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

If you are interested in holding a stall at the next Nullagine Markets, please contact Cate Clancy on 9176 2777 or email nullaginecrc@bigpond.com .
