Moodiarrup auction success
THE recent auction and fair at the Duranillin Hall and school grounds run by the Moodiarrup Hall committee was a successful day.
Items of machinery, produce, furniture and sundries were offered by auctioneer Matt Lowe from Landmark, assisted by Brenton Tynan from Landmark and Richard Buckland from Primaries Darkan.
There was a good turnout of buyers and interested onlookers which resulted in a clearance of items.
Ten stallholders also had displays in the hall as well as two sheep studs and local gardening guru, Syliva King, had stalls outside.
The Fun Fair was enjoyed by everyone with pony rides, a horse and cart and the interactive Yellow Brick Road hunt in which 23 children took part.
The doughnut stall and ice-cream van were well patronised and 20 vintage cars form Collie, Glenforest, Wagin and Katanning clubs also set up display in the car park.
The oldest car was a 1926 model Bentley.
