Faces of Eaglemont Village – Ian BBQ flipper
Saturday’s in the village wouldn’t be the same without Eaglemont Meats charity BBQ.
Let me share a testimonial from expert sausage flipper Ian also a local resident:
‘Recently I was looking at a photograph of the first Eaglemont Traders Fair , the photo depicted my wife, mother, and my nephew then aged 3 he is now 41. Eaglemont village is a step back in time a place that conjures visions of a bygone era. The locals are protective of it and visitors are enthralled by the buildings and customer service.
I have been connected to the village when I bought my house at 17, my age is slightly more these days. We as a family have attended every Traders festival. I have been associated with the Saturday sausage sizzle outside the butchers shop for ever.
The sausage sizzle performs a great community bonding as well as raising money for our selected charity. It brings people to the village enables conversations as well as introductions , a Saturday
ritual over generations. This humble happening typifies the village, we gather we talk we decide we support both each other and the village. ‘
