A HEALTHY crowd came out to enjoy the opening of the Nairm Marr Djambana group’s new garden and playground last week.

Kirrup’s Garden was officially opened on 3 October with a smoking ceremony and ribbon cutting. Chairperson Deb Miller, children, elders, and local politicians came down on the day to celebrate.

Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke told followers on social media that it was “a pleasure” to help open the new garden and playground.

The Nairm Marr Djambana group’s mission statement is to “build and strengthen cultural understanding and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and other Indigenous peoples through delivering strength based programs, events and activities.”

The garden and playground can be found at 32 Nursery Avenue, Frankston.
