Events to save rock pool
The Pearl Beach Progress Association will hold two fundraising events towards the end of the month for the Save the Rock Pool Fund.
A wine tasting day will take place at the Pearl Beach Memorial Hall from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, July 18
According to association communications officer Ms Lynne Lillico, Pearl Beach couple and owners of Wollombi Boutique Wines Peter and Allyson Hoft will be there to showcase their range and support the event.
"Individual bottles and cases of wine can be purchased and delivery can be arranged."
The event will also feature olive oil, cheese, jams, pickles, breads and handmade woodwork and gift items from Hunter Valley Producers.
Entry is by donation and a $3 sausage sizzle will be available on the day.
The local progress association will also host a collectables appraisal day on Sunday, July 26, in the Pearl Beach Memorial Hall from 10am until 4pm.
Favourite collectables and family treasures will be appraised by registered valuers from Sydney, Ms Lillico said.
"The participating appraisers are members of the AAADA which is a national body of some 150 of Australia's most knowledgeable and well-informed art and antique dealers. "They will be available to value ceramics, antique clocks and watches, jewellery, silver, collectables, art and prints."
Event coordinator Mr Bill Blinco said: "They will not be providing any written valuations but will endeavour to provide a fair appraisal on the items presented."
Pre-registration is recommended at a cost of $5 an item with a maximum of three items per person.
