MUNDARING Twilight Markets will be making a return to the streets in 2018 after February’s successful event.

Shire of Mundaring councillors agreed unanimously on Tuesday to approve funding of $8500 to the Rotary Club of Mundaring to help with the cost of running the event.

Club president Geoff Francis said the money raised from the event would go back into the community.

“Our main fundraiser for past 11 years has been the Sunday markets,” he said.

“Last year the Shire approached the Rotary club to see if we would be interested in running a twilight market instead.

“In cooperation with the Shire and with funds from Bendigo Bank it was a roaring success.

“I don’t think crowds like that had been in Mundaring for many years.”

Cr John Daw said there was a demand from the community for these type of events.

“We have lost a few iconic events here in the Shire and this is a great way to get another event at a relatively small cost,” he said.
