Patonga to hold Easter Saturday fete
The annual Patonga Easter Saturday Fete will be held on Saturday, April 15.
The usually sleepy village of Patonga is expected to come alive from 9am to 1pm on Easter Saturday when dozens of residents converge on the Patonga Progress Hall on Brisk St to lend a hand in putting on the traditional Easter Fete.
The Easter Fete is one of the major fundraisers for the Patonga Progress Association.
A variety of stalls are expected to sell arts and crafts, homewares, antiques and collectibles, jewellery, show bags, children's toys as well as a selection of homemade cakes, preserves, plants, books, bric-a-brac, gifts and more.
Gallery owner Ms Jocelyn Maughan is offering to sketch portraits on the day for a small donation to the Patonga Rural Fire Service.
Sausage sandwiches and morning tea with homemade scones and jam will also be on sale.
The "chocolate wheel" will be spinning all morning for a chance to win Easter egg prizes and an Easter egg hamper raffle will be drawn after the fete.
"A visit to the Patonga Fete is always a fun day out for everyone," said organiser Ms Judy Singer.
"We encourage visitors to make a day of it by coming along to the Fete in the morning to enjoy the quaint village atmosphere and friendly local hospitality then head down to the beach in the afternoon with a picnic rug to have a swim, a fish or a snooze in the sun."
