PORT MARKET - LAST SUNDAY EVERY MONTH
The Lions Portarlington Market is bigger and better than ever following a revamp over the winter closedown.
Market management is now online, meaning stallholders can book and pay electronically and our improved Facebook page keeps the public up-to-date on market developments.
The September market opened the new season in style with more than 80 stallholders and plenty of entertainment and this will grow as the warmer weather kicks in.
The next Market will be held on Sunday 27 October between 9.00am and 2.00pm in Little Reserve, Newcombe Street (opposite The Grand Hotel.)

Big raffle boosts local groups
Twenty-eight local organisations benefited from the Community Raffle conducted by the Lions Club of Portarlington/Drysdale.
By participating in the raffle, the organisations shared in ticket sales of $22,628. Unlike other raffles, all money raised by the Lions Community Raffle is returned to the participating organisations (ticket sellers), such as local schools, sporting clubs, etc. thereby keeping the money in the local community.
The Lions Club manages the running of the raffle and provides the prizes, obviating the need for participating organisations to run their own raffles.
The Lions Community Raffle is one of the Club’s major annual projects and has paid out more than $122,000 since it was launched in 2010.
Tickets were sold during July-August with big sellers including the Bellarine Anglican Parish, Winged Horse Equine Welfare, Drysdale Sport Fishing Club, Drysdale Soccer Club and Portarlington Football/Netball Club.
Thirteen prizes totaling $4,000 in value were drawn during a special function at Portarlington Golf Club on 30 August.
The Lions Club thanks all those businesses who generously contributed raffle prizes and all those who purchased tickets.
Activities Shield Win
Portarlington/Drysdale Lions has won the annual Activities Shield for being the top fundraising Club in Lions District 201V2 in 2017-18.
Over the year, the Club distributed $60,094 to local community groups and organisations. In addition, $7,000 was donated to the Western District bushfire relief appeal and $3,000 to various Lions national and international causes.
Lions District 201V2 covers most of western Victoria from Williamstown to the South Australian border.
The Club’s major fundraisers included the Community Raffle, Charity Golf Day, Crayfish Spins, Lions Op Shed and ‘Buggy Bonanza’ raffles run in local caravan parks over Christmas-New Year.
Main beneficiaries of Club donations included local junior sporting clubs and primary schools, from which 12 pupils were funded to attend the Lions Licola Wilderness Camp in January.
