Simply Hand Made Markets – Raymond Laurie Centre, Yamba

Get along to the Raymond Laurie Sports Complex, 78 Angourie Road, Yamba this Saturday morning from 9am – 1pm and check out their hand-made markets.

Around 50 stalls will display an array of hand-made wares for sale. So for that last minute Christmas gift, get along and check it out.

The event is held under cover within the stadium and those attending are reminded to be COVID safe – to sanitise and sign in using the QR code or sign in by hand, before entering.
