It was terrific to pop in on Sunday to Alexandria Park for the second annual Alexandria Summer Fair that was organised by the Alexandria Residents’ Action Group (ARAG).
Many local businesses joined with the Alexandria community to exhibit the huge array of services. Just talking to people and stall holders you could feel the wonderful sense of community pride from the Alexandria community. The rain held off magically on a warm sunny day.
I enjoyed chatting to some of the stall holders at the “Trash and Treasure” site, as well as to volunteers with the St John Ambulance Service who outlined to me the wonderful work they do for our community.
The Alexandria Park Community School band also performed brilliantly for everyone at the fair and I know there were many proud mums and dads watching on.
I would like to congratulate the ARAG volunteers on their outstanding effort in organising the fair. ARAG's level of commitment to the community of Alexandria is certainly worth recognising, that goes beyond raising community awareness and fighting on their behalf on environmental matters.
It also thank Sydney City Council for their support of the fair and I look forward to attending it again next year.
