10th Family Fun Day – community gets 10/10November 1, 2019
The JNC and event partners give the community 10 out of 10 for your spirited participation at the 10th Family Fun Day. Thanks for coming along to Memorial Park in Matraville last Friday, 25 October 2019, for an afternoon of free fun, food and links to support services.
Thanks to the many people who said, “I come every year,” and those who said, “First time – I’ll definitely be coming back!”
Thanks to everyone across the generations for participating in the community wild water fight and the exciting noodle race, engaging so enthusiastically in all the craft activities, and cheering on the Matraville’s Got Talent performers.
Thanks for your enthusiasm for all activities, from the old time favourite climbing wall to new activities like the St John’s CPR game and Randwick City Library’s Spark! Van activities.
