UPDATE – A note from the Glenrose Village Centre Management: As you would be aware the impacts of COVID-19 are becoming more prevalent in the community and many measures are being put in place to prevent the spread of the virus.
These include a reminder for us all to practice general good hygiene, wash your hands thoroughly and regularly, use sanitiser and cough into your elbow.
People who are feeling unwell are asked to reconsider the places they need to visit.
The community concerns are unprecedented.
And so, in line with many other community events and with the community in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Glenrose Village Community Day tomorrow.
The Community Day was designed to celebrate and thank our local heroes and we know how much many of you were looking forward to getting together after what has been a difficult summer.
But we also believe we need to be responsible and pragmatic as Centre Managers.
Our plan is to find another day and have another community celebration – we thank those who have worked so hard to pull this together and we hope to work with you again when we schedule another day.
Over the past months, communities across the country have been greatly affected by environmental disasters, including catastrophic fires, drought, flooding and storms. The tireless efforts of emergency and support personnel has been a shining light during an otherwise dire situation.
Glenrose Village will be hosting a Community Day event to say thank you to our local Rural Fire Service (RFS), State Emergency Service (SES), and Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (WIRES) members for their continued involvement both locally and further afield.
Date: Saturday 14 March
Time: 11:00am – 4:00pm
Location: Glenrose Village Shopping Centre
Get up close and personal with volunteers and their equipment. With two fire trucks from the RFS and SES joining us for the day, you’ll be able to see what goes in protecting homes and wildlife. Both trucks will be taking donations to support their ongoing deployment to impacted areas.
You will also be able to learn more about animal welfare in emergency situations. Visit the WIRES tent for information on how you can get involved in protecting our native wildlife. The team from Monika’s Dog Rescue will be set up next to puppy parking to provide tips on keeping your pets out of harm’s way.
In addition to community groups, there will be plenty of fun for the whole family, with live music performances, balloon art, and face painting across the day. There will also be a polaroid photoshoot studio, with all pictures coming together to create a thank you mosaic within your local Village.
Forest Junior Lions AFL Club will be hosting a gold coin donation sausage sizzle, with all proceeds going towards the RFS, SES, and WIRES. Eat Street will also be open for lunch, so sit down for a curry at Thai Kitchens or grab a burger from The New Civic with Rick Robertson’s groovy tunes filling the air.
