Canowindra Pony Club Swap Meet:
The Canowindra Pony Club is gearing up for its annual fundraiser, its ever-popular Swap Meet. The Swap Meet keeps getting bigger and better every year and this year it will be held on Sunday 7th August at the Canowindra Showground. Anyone can have a stall and you can sell pretty much anything, from kids toys and kitchen utensils, to cars and furniture. If you come along you are sure to find something that takes your eye, or that piece you’ve always been looking for. Stall sites are $10, undercover sites are available and site holders can set up from Friday at 4pm. Entry on the Sunday is just $2 and gates open at 5.30am. Full canteen facilities will be available throughout the day. For more information on the Swap Meet, contact Bill Watson on 02 6344 1886.
