Biggenden Apex Club is in dire need of new members

THE future of the annual Biggenden Apex Club Christmas Fair is in doubt, due to a lack of people-power.

Club member Robbie Radel said the bottom line was the club was in trouble due to a lack of members.

"We're looking for new blood,” he said.

"It is impossible to hold a fair with only four members as it is just too much.”

Mr Radel said Bundaberg Apex Club members would give a hand like they did every year.

"It's not ideal to combine with other organisations to run the event,” he said.

"Things get a bit messy with whose money, who does what, whose insurance etc etc.”

The annual fair, which has been held for the past seven years, provides an avenue for other organisations to run food and market stalls and businesses to stay open for extra pre-Christmas revenue.

But more importantly, Mr Radel said, it was about the community spirit of bringing families together.

"It's a family event,” he said.

Mr Radel said more members were needed to keep the club alive and active in the community.

"The reality is, if no new members (join) the club will fold.”

A meeting will be held at Grand Hotel on Wednesday, October 16, at 7pm to make some big decisions.

Apex is open to both men and women, aged 18-45 years. For further information phone Mr Radel on 0416162404.
