Let the kids join the circus at Heritage Park event

BY the end of the school holidays, some parents might be wishing their child would run away and join the circus, and tomorrow (Thursday) is their chance at the South Lismore Playgroup family fun day at Lismore's Heritage Park.

Circus workshops, face painting, a free morning tea and free train rides will all be part of the family fun from 9am.

Family Support Network Inc Lismore, general Manager Neil Moreton said the concept for the day was devised by staff and the network regularly conducted successful family fun day's involving South Lismore Playgroup and Nimbin Playgroup.

"We often get upwards of a dozen or 15 families who all have a great time," he said.

"Parents often meet new friends and establish new contacts and new supports at these events and in our playgroups.

"Any families that want to come will be most welcome and they will be able to enjoy a healthy morning tea as part of the refreshments."

With school going back next week, Mr Moreton said the Family Support Network staff thought this week was perfect timing for the event.

"We discussed South Lismore Playgroup family fun day pre-Christmas and we thought it would be a good idea to hold the event in the school holidays," he said.

"After a team planning session we set a date and contacted some self-employed people who run circus activities and face painting, then we contacted the Heritage Park railway people and we were able to put together this package."

Anyone wanting to attend can RVSP on 6621 2489.
