Farmers Market Report Thank you to those of you who volunteered to-
day under a very difficult weather conditions. I
am impressed by your professionalism.
We had an unusual cold and wet February
morning. This had affected the number of vis-
itors attending the market. Bridget Hage
The day started with 57 stalls. However,
more than a handful of stallholders packed
up and left early as the wind brought down
their stall marques. Our own BBQ stall
marque also required consistent attention.
Most stallholders were satisfied with the
morning given the weather conditions. Some
stallholders were reasonably happy, as their
regular clients came in early.
Beaumaris Neighbourhood Watch, led by
Geoff Bransbury, broke raffle record of last
month. It goes to show that a good theme,
wonderful prizes and an excellent ticket sell-
ing team is the key to success. There were
two sessions of two to three volunteers at two
gates - difficult to beat! So that you know -
Geoff had about ten days to get everything
organised. Credit and congratulations to the
Neighbourhood Watch team.

Windows – create shade mechanism for heat
Curtains and pelmets for heat retention – especially for
single glazed windows
Ceiling insulation – R6 if possible
Wall insulation – blow in paper fibres or foam
Under floor insulation if on stumps – foam battens
