THhe Laidley Community Centre is relying on the generosity of the community to provide to those in need at its inaugural Share Fair.

On Thursday night March 7 the centre will open its doors to givers and receivers in the community.

Centre manager Alana Wahl said givers could share excess produce, unwanted gifts, talents and skills.

“We’re suggesting people might like to bring things such as unwanted gifts, surplus fresh produce from their gardens, or other small/portable items that are in good condition and might be of more use to others,” she said.

Ms Wahl said the purpose of the event was to enjoy the experience of giving.

“This event is really about providing the space for community to get together and do what community does best – support one another, share and connect,” she said.

“Everything given is given for free and we ask that people be non-judgemental at the event.

Ms Wahl said there would be plenty of entertainment on the night.

“We see this activity as a great chance for the community to socialise and connect and we are planning a few fun side activities for people to take part in after they have finished at the market stalls,” she said.

“We’re very excited to announce, for even more ambience, that we have managed to secure Mick Waterhouse to provide live acoustic entertainment on the night.

“Anyone who has heard Mick play knows his music is the perfect vibe for a chill afternoon.”

The twilight Share Fair will be held at the Laidley Community Centre, 13 Mary Street, from 5pm-7pm on Thursday March 7 with parking on-street.
