Macedon CFA Flea Market 2020
Our annual Flea Market will be held on Saturday 29th February 2020.
The annual Fleamarket for the Macedon Rural Fire Brigade was initiated in 1968 after the Ladies Auxiliary made the suggestion and the first Fleamarket was held at the local service station. The market consisted of bric-a-brac and clothes stalls and auction, etc, all donated by the local community.
The Fleamarket has been successfully conducted every year since 1968, with the exception of 1983 and 1984, due to the Ash Wednesday bushfires that swept through Macedon on February 16, 1983. Unfortunately the fire station was burnt to the ground, including all of the donated goods that had been collected, as the brigade was preparing to hold the event at the end of that month.
In 2009, due to the aftermath of the Black Saturday fires, the unusually hot weather and extreme Fire Danger the Flea Market had to be postponed from its usual Friday night in February and took place on a Saturday in March. The change was very successful and we have decided to continue with a daytime, Saturday event, to enable families and friends to come along and enjoy the whole day.
The Brigade is aiming to make this the most successful Flea Market ever and we are hoping to make considerable progress towards raising the funds needed for the replacement of our Brigade Owned Tanker, which was purchased in 1997 with funds raised with the support of the local Community. Despite our Fund Raising efforts each year, we have been unable to raise the amount needed as vehicle costs have escalated and resale value of our existing vehicle has dropped over recent years.
So, even if you are unable to come along to the Flea Market, but would still like to help support the local Brigade, please consider making a donation towards the replacement of our Tanker. You can drop into the Fire Station any Sunday morning or you can mail it to us at Macedon Rural Fire Brigade, PO BOX 282, Macedon, 3440. Your support will be greatly appreciated and will help us to continue to provide the highest level of Emergency Services to the local community.
Please note that we are unable to accept Clothing, Mattresses, Linen, etc. or older style TVs that are not compatible with the new digital standards
