Free movie screenings over holiday
THIS September school holidays Bundaberg Regional Council will host free outdoor movie nights thanks to Community Drought Support Funding.
Cr Judy Peters said the movie nights were a wonderful opportunity for the family to get together and enjoy a relaxing evening together.
“Three recent and popular family movies will be shown throughout the region as part of this wonderful initiative,” she said.
The community is encouraged to take a night off during the school holiday, pack a picnic blanket and basket and watch a movie under the stars.
Cr Peters said many families, and rural families in particular, had been doing it tough with an extended dry period following the devastating 2013 flood event.
“This initiative is aimed at enhancing connectivity, not just within your own family unit, but with other families in the region going through similar circumstances,” she said.
Our community always shows a desire to band together and support each other during times of hardship.
MOVIE TIMES: Maleficent will be screened at Nielson Park, Bargara on Tuesday, September 29 from 5.30pm. Into the Woods will be screened at North Lions Park, Bundaberg on Wednesday 30, September from 5.30pm. Big Hero 6 will be screened at the Gin Gin Showgrounds on Thursday, October 1 from 5.30pm.
Community Drought Support Funding, offered through the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services, aims to strengthen the resilience of droughtaffected Queenslanders by revitalising existing community support mechanisms and utilising community events to increase access and participation in direct support services.
