The Fryerstown Antique Fair weekend is a great opportunity to visit the recently refurbished community-run old Fryerstown School. Follow the orange flags up the hill behind the Antique Fair and enjoy the peaceful ambience of the school building and historic surrounds. A country-style cold meats and salads platter lunch with delicious local Sprout bread, cake, tea or coffee and a cold drink will be served daily from Friday 24th until Monday 27th January inclusive from 11.30am until 2pm – all for only $10 per head. From 2pm until 4pm you can enjoy afternoon tea, with brewed coffee or tea and home-made scones or delicious cake for $6 per head. Vegetarian and gluten free options are available.
For those who enjoy a quality coffee, hot chocolate or chai in a relaxed café-style setting, the Hey Presto Espresso coffee cart will be operating on the school verandah from 11.30am, with a share of the takings to be donated to the school.
The Fryerstown Community Reserve Management Committee was formed just over three years ago to manage and oversee the much needed repairs and refurbishment of the school buildings. Now operating as a venue for community use and public hire for functions, music events, art and educational workshops, it is hoped that the lunches will earn enough to landscape the surrounding grounds to provide picnic, play and performance areas.
