The Early Childhood Resources Market and Natural Play for Children would like to update our ECRM community of vendors, customers, friends and followers about our pending ECM2020 Market in July.  Since the arrival of the Covid-19 virus in Australia, what a rollercoaster the past few weeks have been, with changes and new regulations often happening daily.

As a family and local community, we are all in unprecedented times.  We have been carefully monitoring this unfolding pandemic and how it is and will impact us as a family and our small business.  After many sleepless nights and a few tears shed, we have made the very tough decision to postpone our indoor market for 2020.  Sharing this post makes our decision very real and it is something I thought I would never have to do.  The health and safety of our family, vendors and local community is and always will be our main priority and heavily influenced our decision to postpone this year’s market.  

Our next ECRM indoor market that will be open to the general public will now be held next year on Saturday 6th March 2021 at our usual venue of Club Macquarie.  This year we will still be supporting our amazing vendors by holding our very first online E-Market sale for our ECRM vendors and valued customers.  Further details to follow in the coming months, so please keep checking back in with us.


We will be focusing on positivity and planning-ahead for the future, working together as an ECRM community to help all our small businesses get through these very difficult and challenging times.  In times of uncertainty, we all need to come together as a community to help and support each other wherever and however it is safe to do so.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need of any assistance or would just love a chat, remember a problem shared amongst friends is a problem halved.


The Early Childhood Resources Market has over the past 6 years networked with many Australian small businesses and will continue to do so into the future.  We have met some truly amazing small business owners and wonderful customers along the way and our market would not be what it is without you all.  

Sending light and love from our family to yours during these challenging times and we look forward to life getting back to usual.  Remember to stay apart, stay connected and share a little extra love and kindness.  ECRM Newcastle will be back and open again to the public in March 2021, better than ever!

Stay Safe and Stay Well
Maureen and Family
