Woopi Market will be on Saturday

WOOLGOOLGA'S monthly beach market will go ahead on Saturday after all.

Organisers Woolgoolga Volunteer Sea Rescue pulled the plug on the May market on Tuesday, saying new restrictions imposed by Coffs Harbour City Council meant 35 stalls out of the 90 booked would have to be turned away, because their new lease reduced by one-third the area on which the market could operate.

But they revived the market yesterday, saying they had received verbal permission from Coffs Harbour City Council to operate Saturday's market on the same area as before and this had been confirmed by email.

On Tuesday they had been reluctant to accept a verbal assurance.

Market co-ordinator Lou Grayson said this gave the group time to meet with council and discuss the issues concerning the lease of the Woolgoolga Beach Reserve for the markets.

She said she had tried to contact as many of the stallholders involved as she could and those she contacted were also ringing others.

“I'm not sure how many we'll have,” she said.
