Hundreds turn out for our annual Open Day

Live music and family fun drew large crowds for the NCC annual Open Day Minifest.

More than 150 community members gathered at Nambour Community Centre on Friday (18 August) for the annual NCC Open Day Minifest. The day was a chance for the community centre to showcase all the great events, services and workshops on offer to the public.

Visitors to the centre enjoyed a sausage sizzle and homemade wood fire pizzas made by local community members who spent the previous day kneading over 5kg of flour into pizza bases.

NCC staff held tours of the centre, while current groups held information stalls to let the community know just what is on offer at their local centre and a range of workshops about topics such as self-love for women, non-violent communication and men’s issues.

Multicultural Community Worker Shine said the Minifest was a great success with people travelling from as far as Maroochydore to come and enjoy live music and a free dinner.

“It was really good,” she said. “There were lots of new people here and people who were just passing-by dropped in to see what was happening.”

Children had their faces painted and enjoyed the playground, bell tent and craft table. There were also henna artists, cultural dance demonstrations and lots of live music for the whole family to enjoy.

A homemade, up-cycled light show rounded out a great evening where the community came together to learn more about their local community centre.

If you want to learn more about your local community centre, drop into Nambour Community Centre, 2 Shearer Street, Nambour, anytime from Monday to Friday 9-3pm. You can also like us on Facebook to keep up to date with events and workshops, subscribe to our quarterly bulletin and check out our website for more information.
