Free family fun day to connect Singleton residents to community services

22/12/2020

If you’re looking for family fun this summer, Singleton Council has teamed up with Belgravia Leisure to host a morning of fun-filled activities that will surely impress the whole gang on Saturday 16 January.

The first ever Community Connect Day will be held at the Singleton Heights Sports Centre, with a hive of activities including outdoor rock-climbing wall, jumping castle, kindy gym, entertainment and giveaways to keep the whole family entertained — all for free. 

Community service organisations including Singleton Neighbourhood Centre, NSW TAFE, NSW Police, Disability Services, Singleton Family Support, Defence, Transport for NSW, Ungooroo and Lifeline will be on hand to showcase the services available to the local community. A BBQ lunch will also be available for free from the Rapid Relief team. 

Council's Director Organisation and Community Capacity Vicki Brereton said the event was a great way for locals to connect with neighbours and the community services available to them. 

“The Community Connect Day will see the Singleton Heights Sport Centre transformed into an amazing pop-up playground, and we are really excited to work with the team at Belgravia Leisure to bring locals together in a COVID-safe way to showcase the amazing facilities, programs and services available to them,” she said. 

“The event is another great initiative under Council’s Community Support Package, and we have some fantastic activities planned – all for free – for kids to get involved in. There will be plenty of giveaways, including showbags and NSW government-approved bike helmets, a rock-climbing wall and jumping castles. 

“And while the kids play, Mum and Dad can grab a coffee and chat with local services and stall holders, register for an Active Kids voucher and Kids in Sport Scholarship, and find out what’s on offer at the Singleton Heights Sports Stadium in term one. 

“But most of all, we just want people to have a whole lot of fun.”

The Community Connect Day will be held at the Singleton Heights Sport Centre on Saturday 16 January from 8.30am – 12.30pm.
