A new initiative by the Sandstone Point Lions is MarketPlace. MarketPlace is a community market held on the first Saturday of every month at the Hall Grounds, Bribie Island Road in the centre of Ningi. The next MarketPlace is on Saturday, 6 July – 7 am to 12 noon with easy off highway parking available. MarketPlace has a great variety of locally produced goods for sale.

There are art and craft, bric ‘a’ brac, sausage sizzle, including egg & bacon muffins, plants & nursery, recreational gear, fresh fruit & veg, gourmet produce, baked cakes and biscuits, alternative medicine & natural products, secondhand goods – and much, much more!

According to Eric Banham, Sandstone Point Lion, MarketPlace co-ordinator and initiator of the idea of holding a regular market in the heart of Ningi, “MarketPlace, has a great community feel and village atmosphere, it’s a new place to hang out on the first Saturday of the month before or after kids sport, you can enjoy a Bacon and Egg muffin brekky, cooked perfectly by a Sandstone Point Lion, relax over a barista made coffee from the ‘Coffee Man’, and to top it off stroll around MarketPlace and pick up a bargain or two at one of the many market outlets.”

This is another way in which you can support your community. So, come along, follow the signs to MarketPlace, Ningi. See you there! For more information please contact Gay Power on 0414 233 566.

A highly successful sales and leadership career working in a number of different and very competitive industries. Engaging with decision makers at all levels in business and government. Three decades employed by corporations, SME businesses in senior roles and almost twelve years operating as a freelance contractor has equipped me well for all aspects of business. Whether leading and mentoring sales teams, or in a direct sales role I enjoy the challenge to meet and exceed expectations. Making a real and tangible difference in either a team environment or as an individual is an important personal goal I have consistently achieved throughout my career. In all of my business and personal dealings over the years there is one issue that stands out above all others - communication. Excellent communication skills creates trust, helps with mutually beneficial outcomes and above all cements long lasting positive relationships. I strive everyday to communicate effectively with the people I encounter.
