The Lions Club of Marlin Coast will operate the monthly Holloways Beach Seaside Markets for the next three years.
It comes after the Holloways Beach Markets Inc notified Council in November 2022 that it could longer coordinate the monthly markets.
Council has entered into a three-year agreement with the Lions Club of Marlin Coast to coordinate the markets from 1 April 2023, with an option to extend the agreement for a further three years.
The Holloways Beach markets has operated since 2001.
It was initially coordinated by the Holloways Beach Residents Association until 2013, was managed by Council in 2014, and then taken over by the Holloways Beach Playgroup in 2015. Holloways Beach Playgroup changed its name to the Holloways Beach Markets Inc.
Since its inception, the markets have grown to become a very successful community activity and is now held 10 times a year, with over 2,000 visitors and up to 150 stalls per market.
