THE ANIMALS ARE COMING
There is no doubt that children (and adults) really get a thrill from being able to get up close and personal with animals and, as a way of making the outing more enjoyable for children, the Lions Club of Sandstone Point has added an Animal Petting Farm and pony rides to the list of attractions at their monthly Car Boot Market in the car park in front of the Sandstone Point oval on Bestmann Road East.
The Animal Petting Farm offers interaction with a variety of animals including an alpaca, chickens, and ducks as well as lambs and goats and has already been a favourite with the kids as have the pony rides.
The Car Boot Market is based on a “Trash and Treasure – Garage Sale” style and is a great way for people to dispose of their no longer needed items and pick up a bit of extra cash. It is held on the first Saturday of each month from 6 am and there is always room for more vendors so if anyone would like to find out more or book a stall, they can call 0435 017752.
To ensure that no one goes hungry during their visit, the members of the Sandstone Point Lions Club operates a sausage sizzle at which bacon and egg sandwiches and cold drinks are also available.
Members had a lot of fun on Clean Up Australia Day
Obviously, this event is held subject to favourable weather conditions and, if it has to be canceled, the advice of the cancellation will be posted on both the Sandstone Point and Bribie Island Facebook community pages early on the Saturday morning.
As part of their commitment to the local community, on “Clean Up Australia Day, despite extremely humid conditions, club members worked tirelessly to collect an incredible twenty-seven bags of rubbish and I believe that during the day, much fun and laughter by all involved made the day enjoyable.
A spokesperson for the club explained that the Lions Club of Sandstone Point has always Worked in cooperation with the Moreton Bay Regional Council and Division One Councillor Brooke Savige to ensure that the areas utilised by the community are left spotless.
