Annerley has two major events each year and next Saturday is our midyear spectacular! The shops open up their doors and trade on the footpath with special sale items, discounts and loads of great finds for the bargain hunters!
We also host the St Lukes of Ekibin church with their always-popular sausage sizzle! There is great food on offer from Groove Cafe, Dudley Street Espresso and Bennies Cafe who are all open for the event.
Sales start at 9am and finish at 1pm so make sure you're here to bag a bargain early!
There will be prizes for the 'Jolliest Jumper' so wear a lairy knit and find the Annerley Community Plus stall to enter. Great local business vouchers are on offer as prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places!
See you all there!
The first Annerley Walking Tour was on Sunday 1st June with a great turn out of 12 keen local history buffs. We met at the Annerley Community Bookstore and undertook an updated version of the "Over the Top with Hugh Lunn" walking tour from the book "Words to Walk By."
Below you will see photos from the tour as well as some historical sites in Annerley. Keep watching the blog, mailouts (sign up here) and Facebook page for the next tour which will take place around Yeronga Park.
