A Nanneella community clearing sale and auction will be held in October, the first in nearly 30 years.
Nanneella Hall and Reserve committee members made the decision to hold the fundraising event at its annual general meeting last week.
Secretary Joan Jenkins said the clearing sale and auction was on October 25 at Nanneella recreation reserve, in conjunction with Rochester real estate agent FP Nevins.
Mrs Jenkins said the event would help the committee raise money for improvements to indoor and outdoor facilities at the hall.
‘‘This hasn’t been done since 1986, but we’re going to attempt it again,’’ she said.
‘‘People have already started listing items such as motorbikes, farm machinery and household goods.
‘‘Anyone can list items or donate them to the hall reserve committee.
‘‘It’s going to be a huge day. At this stage, it looks like the auction will run from 9am and finish around 3pm.
‘‘Lunch and food will be available. That’s where we’ll make most of our profits.’’
A sub-committee has been formed to get things started, but volunteers are needed to help run the sale.
Anyone interested in volunteering or listing an item at the sale, can contact Leigh Mundie on 0428
Mrs Jenkins said the annual general meeting went well, with office bearers elected for another 12 months.
Brett Gledhill and Murray McDonald will continue as president and vice-president respectively.
Michelle Glass was elected secretary, Mrs Jenkins remains treasurer, while Leigh Mundie takes the new position of assistant treasurer.
With nine members on its books, Mrs Jenkins said the committee was always looking for more support.
‘‘We’d love to see any new members or community volunteers who can offer support, even if it’s just two hours a month to weed the garden or mow the lawn,’’ she said.
The committee meets at the hall on the second Tuesday of every month at 7.30pm.
