ST PATRICK’S Day celebrations will be in full swing this year at the Chelsea Heights Community Centre, with the centre set to host a family fun day on Sunday 18 March.
Organisers of the event hope the event will provide a good time for all while celebrating Irish culture.
“With such a large Irish contingency in our community, committee and staff at the Chelsea Heights Community Centre have decided to acknowledge this very well known culture and create a family-friendly celebration for our local Irish ancestors,” Chelsea Heights Community Centre president Maddie Race said.
“We are embracing the Irish culture and bringing a touch of Irish to our community.”
The free event will kick off at 10am and will feature themed activities, including Irish music and crafts.
There are also plenty of giveaways to win if the luck of the Irish is on your side. A boy’s bike, a girl’s bike, and a scooter are up for grabs for the lucky winners of the St Patricks Day colouring competition. All children 12 and under will be eligible to enter.
“Set in the beautiful surrounds of the centre’s Earth Carers Community Garden, we invite you to have some Irish fun. The morning is all about bringing the community together, as we celebrate the Irish culture,” Mrs Race said.
