What a great sunny Saturday it was at Rowland Park, Daceyville with Botany Bay City Council hosting a successful Community day.
I popped along to say hi to all the local people and with a walk around I was pleased to see that Council had provided information stalls on recycling and worm farming, children’s and community services, free fruit and vegetables and general information along with a jumping castle & a rock climbing tower for the kids to enjoy.
The local Police, Maroubra Rotary Club, the Eastern Suburbs PCYC, Botany SES who ran council's free sausage sizzle and Randwick Little Athletics also had stalls there and were very happy to talk to the community about what they do and how to get involved.
Matt Thistlethwaite, Labor candidate for Kingsford-Smith, Botany Bay City Mayor, Ben Keneally, Deputy Mayor, George Glinatsis and Councillors were also busy chatting to the locals and giving out advice where needed.
I must say I am very proud to be the State Member for Heffron as Botany Bay City Council and local community organisations in the Heffron area are so proactive in their services, happy to assist people in need and most of all love what they do, to me that is what makes a great community.
I would like to thank Botany Bay City Council, the local emergency services and community organisations along with everyone who came along for making this event as great as it was.
