Things are a little bit different for this year's Junction Jumble with groups joining forces to make the event a stellar success!
The Annerley Arcade Market, Annerley Community Hub and Annerley Junction Trader's Association have joined up to create a more low-key and community-friendly event coming up on Saturday 1st July at 9am - 1pm.
The usual sausage sizzle and craft stalls will be there along with some great arts & crafts tables for you and the kids to enjoy.
There will be great coffee and food as usual but also a fun food truck with exciting new food to try.
You can see all our sponsors on the Home page who have made this event possible!
Southside Eyewear has been nestled in the heart of Annerley Junction since 1989 and owner and Optometrist, Peter Uttley, has a strong interest and commitment to providing his patients with comprehensive eye examinations and service.
Stepping inside his beautiful practice, you'll notice that this is not a chain store but there is such an air of professionalism and style that you'll feel confident in finding the right pair of spectacles right there instore.
While Southside Eyewear is not a chain store, they are a proud member of Provision, which is a network of over 420 Australian owned, independent Optometrists who share the same principles of quality clinical care and quality products.
You will get a comprehensive eye examination and optical solution whether it be spectacles and / or contact lenses with Peter and he has a broad range of both certified non prescription and prescription safety glasses to suit you both for work and in the home workshop.
If you're in need of an eye check or you need to update your glasses frames, look no further than Southside Eyewear for service, style and value for money.
After the success of their Pop Up Cafe event last October, Annerley Community Hub are doing another event on Wednesday 18th May to test drive their idea of a comfortable and welcoming space, open to all people in the afternoons with food and drinks available by donation.
In this one-of-a-kind cafe space, you will be able to 'pay what you feel' is right for your coffee and cake as well as meet your neighbours and relax in the light and bright hall behind the Hub. There will also be outdoor seating under umbrellas as Brisbane heads into the cooler weather.
This cafe will operate with the assistance of volunteers from around the local neighbourhood who will be able to make you a barista-style coffee, tea or there will also be cold drinks available. Cakes and other sweet treats will be made by locals and donated to the event with all proceeds going to the community centre.
Annerley Community Hub is part of the non profit organisation, Community Plus which services the inner south of Brisbane via centres in West End, Yeronga and Annerley. They give support to all people, especially the most marginalised and vulnerable.
Bring your loose change for this beautiful community event, or if you would like to volunteer your time or baking skills to the organisation, you can email them to get more details: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A wonderful evening of singing Christmas Carols around a campfire on the oval, with assistance from the Junction Park State School choir.
A selection of amazing international foods are on sale for dinner, with all money raised going to Chaplaincy at JPSS. Marshmallows will also be available for sale, to toast over our campfire. Glowsticks will also be available for sale.
This year, the school community will have the choice of Persian, Vietnamese, Japanese or Greek cuisine, courtesy of four generous Junction Park families!
Choose from Vietnamese Sticky Pork Belly rolls (with Vietnamese salad), Yakisoba (Japanese BBQ noodles) and Sushi, Persian or Greek cuisine.
You will sing Christmas Carols together, participate in a Christmas Carols quiz (who will be the Carols champion for 2015?) and eat delicious food together!
What a way to end the year!
