The generosity of parishioners and the public has seen more than $4000 raised for St Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Marton.

The annual fair was held in the church's Broadway hall and convenor Elizabeth Farrell said again the locals' gave generously both in goods for sale and opening up their wallets.

Mrs Farrell said the emphasis is always on home produce and many of the items for sale had been snapped up by midday with a constant stream of people turning up.

She said the weather "was a bit fickle" and that probably affected numbers through the door but she was very happy with the outcome.


Stalls offered new and used clothing, fresh produce and bric-a-brac.

"We had some livestock donated which was trucked through to Feilding for sale.

Our parishioners are so generous with what they gave to the fair and we certainly appreciate that," Mrs Farrell said.
