Little Rosebank Market

ACA has been doing community consultation on the feasibility of a Little Rosebank Market. The Rosebank area of Avondale is geographically separated from the town centre. Apart from a couple of dairies there are no shops within biking or walking distance where people can get their daily needs. We have consulted with the community during the Sirens and Sounds event and have talked to residents at Athletic events in November and December.

Residents welcome the idea of a weekly market and say they would support it. Most people want to be able to do their food shopping locally. Other comments where that it should be a place to meet and affordable.

If you are local and would like to have a stall or would like to be involved then contact us on avondalecommunityaction.org.nz



Avondale Christmas Market 2017

3rd year the Avondale Christmas market took place. We had a few new stall holders but the bulk of the stall holders have been with us from the 1st year. They like the vibe of the event with the music, food stalls and this year a few kids stalls.

An estimated 300 people came through. Where previous year we only had food stalls in the carpark, this year we added a long community dining table which enlivened this part of the community centre more. The gift stalls were indoors and the inner court yard was taken over by Gelato, Candy floss, Live music and lotsa people cruising and chillin’ on their picnic mats. Kids lining up for a free face paint and running off their candy floss / Gelato sugar intake. 😉





So You Think You Can Craft ??

A group of residents has been getting together on a weekly basis to work on needlecraft projects of their own. With support of a tutor some have learned or improved on a needle craft of choice. Knitting being the most popular. Other people join the group to work in company of others.

This group is going to continue on Fridays from 9 February onwards at Avondale Community Centre from 9.30-12pm.

So you think you can Craft?

The perfect workshop for all levels of needlecraft. We have a tutor who is fluent in all kinds of needlecraft. You can come and get help learning knitting, crochet, embroidery etc. Or you can bring your project and work in the company of other crafters enjoying a cuppa. These courses are ongoing. You can come to one or all. Gold coin donation.
