Car Boot Sale a Success

The Victoria Park Committee of Management would like to thank all those who participated in the inaugural Car Boot Sale recently held in the Park.

After a cold morning the weather became very pleasant and perfect for the event. Whilst the numbers of stall holders and the general public were slightly below the Committee’s expectations the event nevertheless was successful both from the point of view of its fundraising purpose and that of most of the stallholders. 

President Carol Perrett said that the Committee was encouraged by the support it had received from the community. She particularly thanked those members of the Bellarine Harness for Pleasure Club who had assisted the Committee with the running of the event on the day, She said that the Committee had identified a number of areas where improvements could be made and that the result would mean that the event would become a regular event in the Park. She hoped that the Committee could continue to attract potential stallholders to the event so that the event could become an even bigger attraction. 

Dates for future Car Boot Sales would be determined at the next Committee meeting and these would be publicised as soon as possible to allow potential stallholders time to plan ahead.

At a recent meeting of the Committee a number of changes of office bearers were made. 

Narelle Bogle resigned as Treasurer but she remains on the Committee. Her place as Treasurer has been taken by Leanne Broad who relinquishes the role of Secretary. 

John Turnbull takes over from Leanne as Secretary. Carol Perrett continues as President. 

In addition, Robin Pearce who has been a mainstay of the Committee for many years has decided that the time to step aside has finally arrived and he has tendered his resignation. His contribution over the years to the wellbeing of Victoria Park is without comparison and his knowledge and commitment will be sorely missed. 

The Committee is holding a luncheon for Robin to thank him for his services both to Victoria Park and to the Inverleigh community.
