Hundreds of people flocked to Mount Gambier’s Cave Gardens precinct on Sunday to celebrate the return of the Rotary Library Market. The market, organised by the Lakes Rotary Club, had been in recess due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resumed for the first time in almost a year.
Club president Darren Archibald said members had worked tirelessly to create a COVID safe event, which attracted about 30 stallholders. Mr Archibald said more than 800 people attended the market. “We knew the community had been looking forward to the market returning, but we were genuinely surprised by the numbers on the day,” he said.
“It was a busy weekend in town, but the weather was perfect for an outdoor market. “It was great to see so many smiling faces.”
The next Library Market will be held on March 14.
