Well done to all the traders who participated in the Valentines Market at Noordhoek Farm Village on Sunday! Tricky weather was handled with aplomb and we had a very wide spread of results: One stall net profit over R800, one over R500, 1 over R400, 3 over R300, 2 over R 200 and 3 over R100. I am missing quite a few sheets, please send via email or Whatsapp. Those who need help feel free to connect so we can work on improving things, but very well done all. Free stalls to any traders willing to assist with admin, capturing sheets and so on. Thanks to all the parents who support, Benson for lifting outreach kids and doing banners etc. If anyone can help with small posters/ads in print that would be awesome, happy to brand them. The variety and quality of goods and activities on offer is really quite phenomenal and keeps getting better as young minds just know no limits!
We had some extra awards as there was just so much AWESOMENESS! Well done to all the kids. Apologies for the brevity of this report – I am still hoping for a “young reporter/photographer/film maker” to pick up this ball and run! Check out the video on the Facebook page and loads more pics there too.

Free workshop & awards 5 April.
I am trying to keep a wish list and work through it:
I am in search of a great venue for an Easter Market on 14 April (Good Friday) preferably with some shelter…OR …Stretch tents and umbrellas for our existing outdoor venues.
Like and comment on the adverts and individual pages the traders share on Facebook…they work really hard on the ads and it counts at awards day!
Come shop at the markets and GIVE FEEDBACK – Let me know who you think should get awards.
We need photographers and reporters, ideally youngster…kids to make youtube reports and fun promos.
PR, graphic design, marketing
Apps to help the traders optimise their range.
Admin: capture the accounting sheets and maintain database.
Certificates & prizes for awards and workshop 5 April. (Also snacks)
Uber sponsors/ transport/ Vehicle maintenance – I transport all the outreach children in my little car.
OUTREACH: Start up assistance is available but need volunteers to help them make stock and guide them.
Damian: Laptop & Data. Damian is an ex trader with Cystic Fybrosis who would love to help with some of the admin. He has been in hospital for over a month now but still keen to keep helping.
Any great ideas!
