Yamba Twilight Markets “fantastic” despite rain and COVID restrictions

The annual Twilight Markets held by the Rotary Club of Yamba this year went ahead on January 1 and once again were a huge success, despite periods of rain and other restrictions on the event due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

This year due to the pandemic restrictions, the markets were moved from Coldstream Street to Ford Park (Yamba).

The use of Ford Park allowed stall holders and people to socially distance and to operate safely, while delivering to Yamba residents and the many visitors to our town a market with a difference.

While the crowds were down slightly over past years attendance, the atmosphere was still fantastic.

For approximately five hours, over 100 stall holders served the many visitors and locals who had dodged rain showers, to grab bargains and some of the delicious hot food on offer.

The Rotary Club of Yamba wish to thank the many people and organisations who made the day another resounding success. In particular we would like to thank the Clarence Valley Council and the Yamba SES who once again stepped up and untiringly helped in making the day a success.

Subject to any pandemic restrictions, we hope to be back in Coldstream Street, in 2022.

Funds raised by the Rotary Club are used in various service projects around our Yamba Community.

The unusual sound of ‘Didgera’, was a popular drawcard for those attending the twilight markets.
