Hawked and Hurled at the Domain

Grabbing a bargainOctober can be a great time of year in Portobello with those balmy warm days that begin to give us hope that summer is just around the corner, and Sunday’s Hawk and Hurl was no exception. With a good number of local people deciding to sell their unwanted items there were plenty of opportunities for visitors to find a bargain Geoof and Richard unloadingor two.

The Portobello Community Inc. team were kept busy helping people with unloading their vehicles, rescuing recyclable items from the bins and collecting scrap metal. This year the team collected around 2-2.5 tons of scrap that will be sold and the proceeds going towards the school pool. The generosity of the community in this type of donation and the support by local farmer  Brendon Cross who supplied the truck for cartage is greatly appreciated.

Many people donated items for sale rather than dumping them in the skips and quite a few people took the opportunity grab a bargain. With desks, outdoor furniture and a range of house-ware its great to see these items get re-used rather than go into the landfill.  The next Hawk and Hurl will be in February so look out for the advertising.
