Strawberries and cream call 'Come to the Fair'

This beautiful building celebrated 80 years of serving the Upper Sturt community this year. Upper Sturt Soldiers' Memorial Hall was built as a Mother's memorial to their lost sons following the end of the first world war.

The Upper Sturt Community Association maintains the hall, and are raising funds with their annual Strawberry Fair and Market on the 7th of November.

If you are looking for a bite to eat, there will be fresh local strawberries and cream or ice cream, pancakes and a sausage sizzle. Delicious home-made cakes, biscuits and slices make a nice treat or a gift for a friend. Upper Sturt is renowned for its catering and there will be baking that will keep until needed for Christmas entertaining.
