Meroo Union Church’s mini-fete on Saturday June 23.

Preparations have commenced for the Meroo Union Church’s mini-fete on Saturday June 23.

The mini-fete goes from 8am to 12pm on the corner of Boxells Lane and Princes Highway, Meroo Meadow.

There will be a white elephant stall, plants, books, cds, fabric shopping bags and much more.

Morning tea will be available at the event.

Funds raised from the day will be used to maintain this historical church which was a gift from David Berry in 1889.

It was a big day back in 1889 when the foundation stone was laid.

The stone was laid on October 3, 1889 by Mrs John Hay, the church being erected in accordance with the wishes of the late David Berry, who died on September 23, 1889; a postponement of the foundation stone ceremony from the September 19 to the new date having been made in consequence of Mr Berry’s illness and death.
