St Mark's Spring Fair

Thursday, 24 October 2019

Speaker, I recently had the pleasure of attending the St Mark’s Church Spring Fair, hosted alongside St Mark’s Preschool, which is actually the preschool I attended. This year is particularly exciting with St Mark’s Church celebrating their centenary year. This year’s festival featured the Connells Point Public School choir, as well as a mobile animal farm. The local Hurstville Fire Brigade were also there to have a chat with the community, and there was a wide array of colourful stalls set up. St Mark’s caters to the South Hurstville, Connells Point and Kyle Bay suburbs within my electorate, but the annual Spring Fair is always successful in bringing large groups of people together. I really enjoyed walking around the Fair and having a chat to local residents. Events organised by community groups are a great way to bring local residents together. The centenary the Church is celebrating this year is symbolic of the strong sense of community that the Church has fostered over the years and I look forward to continue supporting St Mark’s in the future.
