A book fair held over the Long Weekend in Umina Beach has raised an approximate total of $1,650 in support of local youth.

The fair was held at the Police Citizens Youth Club in Umina in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Woy Woy.

Woy Woy Rotary member, Vic Brown, thanked fellow members for their efforts in running the fair.

“Without [their] attendance and assistance, the project would have really struggled,” Brown said.

“We did deploy more volunteers in the actual selling time frame than perhaps in the past, but we had also more challenges in terms of meeting and greeting the public and ensuring that they signed in to the COVID-19 reporting mode.”

Brown said the attendance of buyers and guests was down on previous years but credited the impact of COVID-19 for the decreased turnout.
