Spring fair aims for improvement dollars

THE BRISBANE River Terraces Village Lifestyle Association is in the final stages of planning for its annual Spring Fair on September 15.

The Goodna retirement village community organises the event as a fundraiser to contribute to maintenance and improvements on its impressive riverfront grounds.

The fair, to be held 8am-2pm, features an array of stalls, food, activities and prizes for all ages.

Co-ordinator Pat Hurley said the residents' committee, which looks out for the village's 150 inhabitants, hoped to raise enough money for several items on the wishlist.

"We are looking at things like a handrail into the pool, a new projector screen and maybe a new bus some time in the future,” Mrs Hurley said.

"The fair will be catering to children this year, with plenty of sideshow games. Our residents have made and donated items to give away on the day.

"We also have some rock'n'roll entertainment and a sausage sizzle.”

For more information, phone Mrs Hurley on 0409 262 795. The village is located at 213 Brisbane Tce, Goodna.
