Community gets behind Rocky Swap
THANKS to a whole lot of community effort and support, Saturday's Rocky Swap was a huge success.
President for the Rotary Club of Rockhampton North, David Anderson, said between 10,000 and 15,000 people walked through the gates of Rockhampton Showgrounds to see the huge variety of items stallholders had for sale.
“It was an absolutely brilliant day, the weather was wonderful and there was some incredible stuff being sold,” Mr Anderson said.
“People came from every corner of Australia to sell and swap here so we're now the third biggest swap in Australia.”
Seventy-five per cent of sites have already booked for next year's event, indicating that next year's swap will be just as big.
“The members from all of the Rotary clubs in the region as well as Gladstone have done such a great job in organising, setting up and cleaning up,” Mr Anderson said.
“We also had the Lions club's help, kids from the Grammar School and even some scouts, so it was a great community effort.”
Mr Anderson said Rotary clubs are always seeking new members and if anyone wishes to join they can contact him on 0437467361.
