  • 2018 Swap Meet

    The weather was kinder to us this year. In brilliant sunshine both in the two weeks of preparation of Camp Reserve and on the weekend of the town's major event, little if any rain fell. On the day of the meet a good crowds provided much trade for the 600 plus site holders. Much food and drink was consumed.

    The Lions Club, as ever, was greatly assisted by many groups in the local community in the venture.
