Once again we will have a number of activities happening in our car park. Everything will be gold coin donation with all proceeds going to our local Menai RFS! We have planned something for everyone: live carols, a BBQ, and the popcorn and slushie machines will be ready to go! We have face painting and Christmas ornament decorating ready for the kids.
Our Christmas Dog Competition is returning! Bring along your pet in their Christmas best and they could win a prize!

We will be hosting a Christmas Food Drive for Foodbank! Foodbank do incredible work supporting those in Australia experiencing a hunger crisis. Please consider bringing along a non-perishable donation on the 17th, handing it to our volunteers at the drop off point and then continuing on to enjoy all the activities we will have on offer!
