Long Lunch launch of the Solar Pergola project

Created: Tuesday, 12 April 2016

The Maldon Neighbourhood Centre will be launching its new project “Powering Our Community: The Solar Pergola Project” on Sunday 24 April with a Long Lunch Fundraiser.

We are inviting everyone to invest in the future of the Maldon community by raising $6000 to install a 3kw solar panel system on the purpose-built pergola in the community garden. This will reduce our heating bills by $1000 every year so we can contribute even more to our community.invitationposter

Enjoy Christmas shopping for a change by steering clear of bland over-crowded malls and shopping at the Maldon Market: Hand Made, Home Grown on Sunday 13 December, 9 -2pm.

The Maldon Market has a wide range of hand crafted and artisan products from the local area which make a thoughtful gift for friends and family, including delicious jams and chutneys, hand made moisterisers and lip balms, jewellery, chocolates and more.

Strolling through the Shire Gardens and browsing the interesting and varied stalls makes shopping fun. The children can enjoy themselves at the nearby playground or have a ride on the donkey cart – specially decorated to spread Christmas cheer! Be entertained with live music and local buskers, including face painting for the children.

November 8th is a special day for the now extremely popular Maldon Market – it’s its second birthday.


And like any two-year-old’s party, there’s going to be fun, presents and music to help celebrate.


Even though it’s only two years old, the Maldon Market has become one of the most popular kids on the block when it comes to country markets. In its short but busy lifetime, it has given many community groups the opportunity to raise over $30,000 in funds to go towards projects, making the market a much-loved member of the local family.
