The Hands Oval markets are a staple of Bunbury's summer months. If you own real estate in Eaton, Australind and other Bunbury areas, then you're likely familiar with the experience of walking past the stalls in the summer sun, perusing the wares on offer and buying a few treats to take home. And if you're not then, this year could be the time to start!
Applications have officially opened for community groups and non-profits to hold markets at Hands Oval. The markets will be open between October 2014 and March 2015.
The applications will be evaluated and have dates allocated by 3 October 2014, according to a 20 August media release. Anyone interested in the results will be able to see them in the local newspapers.
The markets will not only be a fantastic way to spend a Saturday afternoon for families in the area. They also provide a great opportunity for local community and sporting groups to promote themselves, sign up some new members and raise a bit of money. Perhaps you fall into both categories!
Submissions will close on 12 September, so if you're interested, you've got to get in quick.
