ARTWORKS Granite Belt will hold a market on Saturday to fundraise for a building fund.

Proceeds will mainly go towards disability facilities to be put into the Railway Station building.

The group is looking at putting a cafe into the Railway Station, establishing a gallery and providing work-shops in the near future.

ArtWorks Granite Belt secretary Anita Knight said a disability ramp was crucial for the ArtWorks Granite Belt group.

"We have to put disability facilities in before we can put a coffee shop and other things in,” she said.

"We want to provide a space where everybody can meet.”

ArtWorks Granite Belt is a non-profit organisation that is passionate about creating a creative community space, a hub dedicated to building connections, inspiring new ideas, bringing diverse visions as well as expanding opportunities.

There will be a range of different stalls including vintage rummage, bric-a-brac, plants, crafts, local produce, cakes, quality coffee and take-away food.
