The Tatura Guardian - - News - By Tara Whitsed

Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil will now fea­ture an Ac­tive Arts com­po­nent among the more than 400 ac­tiv­i­ties sched­uled for September this year through to April next year.

The 2017-18 Ac­tiv­i­ties in the Park pro­gram was of­fi­cially launched last week, which pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for Greater Shep­par­ton res­i­dents and vis­i­tors to par­tic­i­pate in a num­ber of free and low-cost ac­tiv­i­ties, en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to be out­doors and get ac­tive.

Pro­gram co-or­di­na­tor Car­men Ni­chol­son high­lighted a num­ber of ex­cit­ing ac­tiv­i­ties sched­uled in the new pro­gram, which in­cluded 3D Chalk Art, Sand­cas­tle Sculpt­ing and African Drumming.

‘‘Dur­ing the school hol­i­days there’s an ac­tiv­ity on every day some­where in Greater Shep­par­ton,’’ Ms Ni­chol­son said.

Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil’s direc­tor of com­mu­nity Kaye Thom­son thanked every­one for their in­volve­ment in the pro­gram, par­tic­u­larly the lo­cal busi­nesses, clubs and as­so­ci­a­tions for their de­liv­ery of ac­tiv­i­ties and sup­port of the pro­gram.

‘‘I en­cour­age res­i­dents and vis­i­tors to the re­gion to look over the pro­gram and at­tend some of the ac­tiv­i­ties that are on of­fer,’’ Ms Thom­son said.

‘‘The ac­tiv­i­ties are open
