Pottsville expo aids community

A CRAFT group, support groups and community services were exposed to the public in Pottsville yesterday.

The Pottsville Craft Group was one of 24 stalls at the third annual Safe and Healthy Community Information Expo, run by Pottsville Beach RSL and Pottsville Beach Neighbourhood Centre.

Maree Horwath helps run the craft group and said the exposure was invaluable for community groups.

“It’s good that groups like ours can get be a part of these events because not everyone knows we exist,” Ms Horwath said.

She said the craft group meets every Wednesday between 9am and noon at the Anglican Church Hall in Pottsville.

RSL president John Hawes said the expo was a success, with more than 100 people through the doors.

“We had more people than last year and we changed the format so services could introduce themselves and had more guest speakers,” Mr Hawes said.

“The RSL women’s auxiliary must get a big thank-you for running the canteen, as they bake all the cakes themselves for the morning tea. As well as services already available for Pottsville residents, the Bendigo Bank had a stall because they are looking at opening a bank here.
