Five Things – May 31/June 1

A gallery opening? Markets? Rugby or Soccer?

Looking for some ideas for the weekend? Here’s our pick of five things to do in the area this weekend.

Did you know – it’s against the law to smoke on the sideline of a kids’ sporting game? The ban applies even if you’re in an open-air area. For more information, click sportsground-factsheet.

Mixed Media, Drawing and Pottery Exhibition, Opening Night

13-May-Art-CentreDo you feel like going to a gallery exhibition opening night? Ku-ring-gai Council is pleased to invite the community to the opening night of a free art exhibition featuring unique pottery pieces and artworks by students and tutors at the Ku-ring-gai Art Centre on Friday May 30, 6pm – 8pm.

Turramurra Flea Market – Saturday morning

A good way to start a Saturday morning would be to rummage around a flea market. The Turramurra Flea Market will be held at Turramurra Uniting Church, 10 Turramurra Avenue. This bi-annual event attracts a good crowd with all the proceeds going to various local and international charities.

Rugby or Soccer?

Barker Old Boys Rugby Club, Ladies Day

DSC_8319The ladies day at a rugby club is usually a fun event and the BOBs Rugby Ladies Day promises to be one of the better ones. There is a $20.00 admission fee to the exclusive ladies area, but as the admission price includes champagne and food, the entry price will be well worth it. Proceeds from the day go to the local charity “Fresh Tracks”. This week BOBs take on Hunters Hill and the main game kicks off at 3:15pm. Should be a good afternoon.

Football – West Pymble vs St Ives O45

The old men of soccer are having a top-of-the-table clash at Barra Brui Oval at 3:00 on Saturday afternoon. Maybe not as quick as the lads in the premier division, but just a skilful, these teams should put on an exciting show as they battle it out for supremacy in Division One.

Late notice: This game has been move to Warrimoo Oval at 3:00pm.

Heritage Markets, St Ives Showgrounds
