Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Ce­cilia Allen

The City of Man­durah is en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to re­con­nect with their neigh­bours at its last two MyPark Grooves events.

The se­ries of free com­mu­nity events has been run the last two week­ends with more events planned for Novem­ber 19 and 26.

MyPark Grooves en­cour­ages res­i­dents to take own­er­ship of their parks by keep­ing an eye out for theft or van­dal­ism and re­port­ing it to po­lice and au­thor­i­ties.

The events fea­ture en­ter­tain- ment, live mu­sic and ac­tiv­i­ties for all ages, and a sausage siz­zle.

Res­i­dents can also find out more about the Eyes on the Park re­wards pro­gram to help com­bat van­dal­ism in these ar­eas.

Mayor Rhys Wil­liams said good neigh­bour­hood re­la­tions were im­por­tant and en­cour­aged peo­ple to re­con­nect with the help of MyPark Grooves.

“Parks and re­serves are a cen­tral hub for ev­ery neigh­bour­hood and a great space to con­nect with peo­ple liv­ing nearby,” he said.

“The MyPark Grooves se­ries is a great way to get to­gether with your neigh­bours to cel­e­brate what’s great about liv­ing in Man­durah.”

The Safer Man­durah MyPark Grooves project has been de­vel­oped in re­sponse to is­sues high­lighted by res­i­dents, busi­nesses and WA Po­lice, and works to up­hold com­mu­nity safety and crime pre­ven­tion.

The next MyPark Grooves event will be held at Yin­dana Lakes in Lake­lands on Novem­ber 19, from 3-6pm. The last MyPark Grooves is planned for Novem­ber 26 at Mon­tego Way in Halls Head, from 3-6pm.
