Soak up good vibes with cops

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

GATHER your neigh­bours, friends and fam­ily for the op­por­tu­nity to cool off with a wet and wild wa­ter bat­tle like no other.

The City of South Perth, the South Perth Youth Net­work, Kens­ing­ton Po­lice, Royal Life Sav­ing WA and Gowrie WA will put on the big­gest wa­ter fight the City has seen as part of arts pro­gram A Story to Tell.

Sum­mer Splash is a free event on Jan­uary 29 and aims to bring peo­ple to­gether and have fun while ex­plor­ing the hid­den parks and path­ways of Karawara.

Kens­ing­ton Po­lice have chal­lenged com­mu­nity mem­bers with ‘Kids vs Kenso Cops’ and have of­fered chil­dren the op­por­tu­nity to soak a po­lice of­fi­cer from head to toe in the bat­tle.

Kens­ing­ton Po­lice act­ing Of­fi­cer in Charge Se­nior Sergeant Craig O’He­hir joked the kids would need to bring their A-game.

“There’ll need to be lots of kids to par­tic­i­pate or Kenso cops will win for sure,” he said. “But jokes aside, we’re look­ing for­ward to get­ting to know the com­mu­nity in such a fun at­mos­phere.”

The event will have a gi­ant in­flat­able slip-and-slide and a free sausage siz­zle and fresh fruit pro­vided by Water­ford IGA and Neigh­bour­hood Watch South Perth. Sum­mer Splash will use pur­chased wa­ter from a hire ser­vice and will take place on grass at the Karawara Green­ways on Walanna Drive from 4-6pm.
