Market a thirsty business

RISING temperatures and an early start to the year have combined to give the monthly PCYC Craft Markets a slow start for 2012

Bundaberg PCYC manager Sergeant Robert Smith said yesterday's turn-out was not as high as usual for the monthly markets.

"We don't know whether it's the hot weather or the fact that it's on the eighth, which is quite early and may have caught people off guard," he said.

But the slow start to the year did not concern the PCYC.

"We had 67 stalls today and a lot of new people attended as well as some of the regulars," he said.

Sgt Smith said the hot weather had also contributed to a spike in drink sales.

"We sold a lot of cold water," he said.

The PCYC Craft Markets are held the second Sunday of every month at the PCYC.

But Sgt Smith warned the markets would be held earlier next month.

"They will be on the first Sunday as we are having a sports day on the second Sunday," he said.

For more information on the markets phone 41542813.
