Egerton Street lit up for Future Hope Twilight Markets
EGERTON Street came alive last Saturday evening when Future Hope hosted their Twilight Markets.
The street literally lit up and was filled with market goers, with vendors displaying a variety of goods, from crystals to handmade crafts, toiletries and accessories.
Some of the vendors included were the Hopelands Church Bake Stall, which was raising money for the Emerald Hospital, Rosie Jo Creations, who sold different handmade items for Christmas, Marni and Moo, who sold accessories, and Mumma J’s Handmade Soap.
Community organisations, such as Emerald Junior Motorcycle Club, Emerald Christian College, and Yumba Bimbi Support Services also held stalls.
Unfortunately, due to health complications, Future Hope Ambassador and Olympic Gold Medallist, Duncan Armstrong, could not open the markets.
However, singer Sophie Phillis was still a highlight, and both Central Highlands Regional Council Mayor, Kerry Hayes, and Council Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Scott Mason, attended.
