Helen Porteous and Judy Brawn promoted our group at the Sunrise Rotary Market on Sunday the 10th of March, luckily we had a marquee so had some shade. There was a good crowd wandering around and some small sales were made. Sunrise Rotary run two markets each year and we look forward to participating in the November one.
