#GreatNewsThursday – Play, create and explore with Council this Children’s Week

14 Sep 2023

Children of all ages are invited to attend Council’s free Children’s Week activities this October in Euroa and Avenel.

A fun event with Kim from Start Outdoors will be held in the new play space at Jubilee Park, Avenel, on Saturday October 21 from 10am to noon.

“There will be an opportunity for children to come and check out the new play equipment,” Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Laura Binks said.

“You can also bring along morning tea and a packed lunch if you’d like to stay around and play.

“We would also like to remind all parents they are responsible for looking after their children and at least one adult must be present to supervise their child/children at all times.”

Bookings are required via: https://events.humanitix.com/fun-in-the-park-at-jubilee-park

GV Libraries is also hosting a Come and Play Morning on Saturday 21 October, 2023 from 10am to noon at the Avenel Library. Children can create their very own spinning tops and balancing birds and decorate them. For more information, phone GV Libraries on 1300 374 765 or email avenel@gvlibraries.com.au Although it’s on at the same time as ‘Fun in the Park’, participants should be able to fit both activities in in the two hour sessions.

A Nature Art event will be held the following day, Sunday October 22, at the Euroa Arboretum from 10am to noon.

“Numbers are limited to 20 children and they must have a supervising adult with them. Bookings can be made via https://events.humanitix.com/nature-art-at-the-arboretum,” Cr Binks said.

“Bring morning tea and packed lunch if you’d like to stay around and play but make sure you also bring warm gear, gumboots, a change of clothes, hat, sunscreen and sense of adventure.”

This Children’s Week activity is presented by Strathbogie Shire Council in partnership with the Victorian Government.
