Next Market - Saturday December 5

posterYes - we are back! Finally, with the easing of restrictions arising from the COVID-19 health situation, the Valla Beach Community Association are immensely pleased that our regular two-monthly markets are back. We were so pleased to see our regular stallholders and customers back when we restarted on Saturday August 1.

videoOur next market will be held at the Valla Reserve on Saturday December 5 from 8am to 1pm. What a great place to find that special Christmas present or buy some of the fresh seasonal fruit.

There will be musical entertainment - details to follow - plus great coffee and hot food from the Valla Lions. Who can resist their bagon and egg rolls, steak sandwiches and more?

Bring the whole family, especially the kids who will love the jumping castle. We are also a dog friendly site too but please keep Fido on a lead.

Help make the Market Plastic Free

Boomerang BagWe are striving for a plastic free and eco friendly Market. Sadly while we are under the incluences of the coronavirus pandemic we are unable to provide you with a renewable mug for your hot drink so we ask you to bring your own which the coffee van will behappy to fill. We also encourage Market visitors to bring along their own re-useable bags for their purchases. ’Boomerang bags’ are also available for your use.

Australia Day Award

Mel BestThe Valla Beach Community Association (VBCA) was honoured with a Service to Community by Organisation award by Nambucca Valley Council at the 2020 Australia Day ceremony.

The award reflects the work that the VBCA has made to the community in recent years much of which has been achieved through the success of the bimonthly Valla Beach Markets.

The award also reflects the partnership between the VBCA and the Community Drug and Alcohol Team (CDAT) through the markets.

The VBCA and markets were saddended at the passing or Melvyn (Mel) Best in early January. Mel, a stalwart in the successful running of the VBCA and Valla Beach Markets, was posthumously awarded the Senior Citizen of the Year for 2020 by Nambucca Valley Council at the Australia Day ceremony.

Supporting the Community

The market is an initiative of the Valla Beach Community Association to raise money for the protection, repairs and positive growth of Valla Beach along with creating an avenue for networking and bringing the community together for good times and great bargains.

The markets contribute funds towards projects many of which are located at Anderson Park. We have previously outlaid over $15,000 towards a childrens playground and seating, and have installed shading over the playground at a cost in the region of $26,500. A second seating area, including a cover, has also been installed and work was completed to improve the drainage on Anderson Park to make it much more usable after periods of rain. Cricket practice nets have been erected and the installation of netball/basketball courts is almost complete.

Help us to set the priorities by coming along to a community meeting or contact us to give us your views.
