Markets are mum's treat

WHEN mum Donna Webber woke up yesterday she could not believe her eyes.

Her four children had woken up at the crack of dawn and made her a beautiful sign and lit candles for her for Mother's Day.

Her eldest daughter Hayley, 12, said she and her brothers Saige, 14, and Max, 7, and sister Amber, 6, loved everything about their mum.

“She lights up our day and heart, and we don't know what we'd do without her,” Hayley said.

So after breakfast they took her to the Heritage Village Mother's Day markets.

“I was spoilt,” Donna said at the bustling markets yesterday.

“These markets are great, they're so big.”

All around her were mothers and their children riding camels, shopping for flowers, jewellery and clothes, and enjoying ice-creams.

More than 6300 people went through the gates at the markets yesterday, and the Heritage Village markets co-ordinator said everyone seemed to have a great time.

“There were lots of kids bringing their mums and grandmothers,” she said.

“The flowers were beautiful and the weather has been kind. We even had Dexter cattle, and the little baby cows were celebrating with their mums.”
