Celebrating ‘our park’ the Suffolk Park community is coming together for a funday picnic this coming Sunday, May 28.
The all ages event will be a community celebration of winning the 2016 Save Our Park Campaign – when Suffolk Park almost lost its only, open green space.
Starting at midday there will be live music from the Tin Can String Band, Children’s Entertainer Shorty Brown, face painting plus old style races including egg and spoon and sack races. All winners will receive a ‘Village Champion’ award.
The picnic will end with a fun-filled finale, a Beachside vs Lakeside residents’ tug of war.
‘We have shown what can be achieved when we all pull together,’ said Suffolk Park Progress Association’s president, Donald Maughan.
‘Now we want to know who are the strongest in the great Suffolk Park tug of war!’
Residents are invited to bring their own picnic hampers but the Byron Bay Preschool will be holding a sausage sizzle from midday.
People are asked, where possible, to walk to the event due to limited parking.
‘Community happens when individuals come together, have fun and acknowledge each other. Let this be the motto of our village,’ Mr Maughan concluded.
