Seymour’s First Fun Day kicks off

156

THE first-ever Seymour Fun Day will take place on AFL Grand Final Eve public holiday, where young people and families are invited to a day out of fun and games.

If successful, the event could possibly turn into a permanent fixture for community members.

Starting at 10am, the amazing race/scavenger hunt will kick off at Chittick Park, with teams of up to eight people, including at least one person over the age of 18, able to enter.

A range of activities can be chosen from 11am until 2pm, such as AFL activities, laser tag, archery, giant snake ladders and much more that will keep visitors entertained while treating themselves to the sausage sizzle, coffee, and ice-cream vans.

The event is organised by a team of community members, working to start a community enterprise called Fun Centre in Seymour.

They are aiming to provide activities such as mini golf, rock climbing, multi-storey play space and a café and fund a space for young people to enjoy.  

The Seymour Fun Day is also supported by a Christian volunteer movement, SU Victoria, working with children, young people, families and empowering communities through camps, holiday, and a school program. 

Seymour Fun Day will be on Friday, September 29 at Seymour Sports and Aquatic Centre.
