carols in belgrave

Friday night saw the annual Carols in the Park in Belgrave. Around 200 people came out to listen to local artists perform carols and original songs. Children were entertained by story telling and a rendition of the 12 days of Cricket (Christmas).

The arrival of Santa with his sack of lollies delighted the children.
Rotary did a roaring trade, cooking up sausages provided for via my ward fund. I was there with the Eastern Transport Coalition’s Monster Petition, where community members were keen to support public transport issues.

It was a terrific night, organised by BRAG and supported by many local traders throughout the township.

I spoke about the trying year Yarra Ranges has had with the Black Saturday bushfires, but how the community had rallied behind bushfire effected regions where I have seen recovery and rebuilding as well as regeneration. The generosity given to our communities after the Black Saturday tragedy is a real reflection of the Christmas spirit. With that I wished carol goers a merry Christmas and quiet new year to follow.
