Booksale

Book lovers have again turned out in droves to snap up a bargain at the Bega Rotary Club’s Book Fair.


Assisted by the introduction of an EFTPOS machine, the three day biannual event was popular over the weekend, raising around $16,000.


Club president Charlie Blomfield says the money will go to many local projects.
