St Mary’s Parish Church Car Park

The Square, Comber – 1.30pm 

 Beautiful Flowerspetunias Sept 2015

I thought I would share this photograph with you of my  beautiful, trailing pink petunias which I planted in a tub at my back door.  I bought them from Ivan McCutcheon at the market in June and they are still blooming well in late September.  


As luck would have it, the settled weather that we have been enjoying is set to continue until Thursday.   The weather forecast for Thursday is to be dry, a few sunny spells, light winds, with temperatures around 14C. Perfect weather for an outdoor market!

 McMillan Coffee Morning

The ladies on the church catering team are donating the proceeds of their morning teas to McMillan Cancer Support. SColumbiano come along to the market, have a cup of tea and a home baked scone or cake and support this worthy charity.

 New Trader

We welcome new trader Wee ChoCo from Moneyreagh who make hand crafted chocolate bars. Along with 65% Cocoa dark chocolate bars, other flavours include Lime and Chilli, Orange and Ginger, Honeycomb and Eton Mess. They also provide chocolate workshops and work experience for people with learning difficulties and autism in Northern Ireland in a real factory setting.

 Ulster Wildlife Trust 

The  Ulster Wildlife Trust will also be attending the market to give out information about their conservation work in helping to protect rare and threatened species like the red squirrel, barn owl, basking shark and Irish Hare.  They also provide and manage  safe well maintained habitats in 18 nature reserves across Northern Ireland.
