Whitianga Town Garage Sale over Queens' Birthday Weekend

The 11th Whitianga Town Garage Sale will be held over Queen’s Birthday weekend.

With almost 30 household and business garage sales registered, the weekend is bound to be a bargain hunter’s delight.

A map of Whitianga with a list of the garage sales is pictured here and can also be found on page 18 of this week’s Informer.

Sales have been registered for all three days of the weekend. Several of the sales are fundraisers for community groups.

A small registration fee has been paid for all the sales, which will go to a local charity to be chosen by the Mercury Bay Area School primary student leaders.



Should the voting age be lowered to 16 years of age?

The Mercury Bay Informer is a highly popular community newspaper, based in Whitianga. The paper is distributed throughout the Coromandel Peninsula, coast to coast from Thames to north of Colville.
