There was plenty of family fun to be had in Rosewood last week.

The Rosewood and District Support Centre held a free Family Fun Day on Thursday 11 April with an estimated 500 people turning up to connect.

Event organiser Tia Lancaster said the day gave local children somewhere to burn off their holiday energy, given the parents a chance to have a break.

“The air was filled with excitement as the children jumped on the jumping castles, wooshed down the waterslides, licked yummy ice creams and chomped on delicious sausages,” Ms Lancaster said.

“It is essential to provides these opportunities to community, where everyone can get together and have fun with their families in community, especially at the moment when some families are doing it really tough.”

Ms Lancaster said she loved hearing the laughter of the children and seeing parents connecting over coffees.

“As an organiser I love to connect with the community and find out what they liked about the event,” she said.

“The Rosewood and District Support Centre are able to run these events due to the generosity of volunteers and sponsors.

“I would like to express immense gratitude to The Rosewood Lions Club for sponsoring this event and the wonderful RADSC volunteers that made the event possible on the day.

“I would like to also thank our amazing community for showing up and making this day such an enjoyable event for all.”
