Cudgee Harvest replaces night markets as school's annual fundraiser

In an effort to return to its grass roots, Cudgee has decided to ditch their annual November night market in favour of a festival honouring its farming traditions.

The Cudgee Harvest, to be held on March 23, will be a twilight event to be held in the school grounds from 5pm to 8pm.

Event organiser Sue Ellen Dodson said the change to the annual fundraiser would be a chance for the town’s 200-strong community to showcase its wares.

“We’re hoping we can show what we have on offer out here,” she said.

Mrs Dodson said sunflower seeds that the school’s 30 children had grown and harvested, would be sold at the event alongside familiar market stalls.

“There will be fresh produce swaps, hand-made jewellry, ceramics, preserves and jams, rides, hot food, raffles and face-painting,” she said. “We’re hoping families will come and lay down a picnic blanket and stay for dinner and enjoy live music and make a night of it.”
