The Morbel Hall Markets are back on November 6 after a break during COVID-19 stay-at-home lockdown.
Committee member Maureen Birmingham said it always has a community feel. There will be jewellry, homemade cards, bric-a-brac, handmade goods, plants, crystals as well as fresh scones with tea or coffee available.
“Everyone will be in it this time after the break,” she said in regards to stallholders.
Maureen said the committee anticipates decent crowds to visit.
“There will be plenty of locals attending. Locals are looking for something to do without travelling,” she said.
The monthly market hasn’t been on due to lockdown, but usually runs on the first Saturday of the month.
She said organisers are watching the COVID presence in the community and any changes to current conditions. The markets could be postponed at the last minute.
There will be security and everything will be done properly, she said. Double vaccination certificates, mask wearing, social distancing and check-in will be mandatory.
The 90-year-old Morbel hall has been renovated recently. The work has been finished now.
There’s new interior painting throughout, sanding of the floors and installation of reverse cycle air conditioning.
“I can remember when I was 16 and going to my first dance out there,” Maureen said. “It looks brand new.”
She said it will be a great chance to see what has been done at the community hall and the 50-year-old side hall.
