Free movie screen­ings over hol­i­day

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

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.
